Hi All,

This is the mplayer (famous linux media player ) port for Windows smartphone . I have tested this with Application unlocked SP5m ( WM6) . It should run on all WM5+ smartphones as well Pocket PCs .

Installation guide..

Unzip all the contents to memory card and run mplayer.exe , All files should be in same folder.

Advantage of mplayer
-- Full support of streaming
-- supports all real media formats including streaming.
-- Supports RV40, RV30, R20 , sipro , cook and atrac codecs.
-- Supports MP4 streaming over RTSP.
-- All flavors of Flash video are supported.
-- Uses coremp4 for MP4 decoding.

TODO:

-- Need to imporve GUI ( current version is just for preview)
-- WMA decoder is not supported ( Need to add windows DMO driver, any help will be great)
-- Need to fix some crashes .


Overclock your tornado to 240 MHz , this will give best result.

Download armv4 version of Mplayer this should run on all devices

Download armv5te version of Mplayer this should run on all omap850+ devices

Download iwmmxt version of Mplayer this should run on all devices which has iwmmxt optimization, not tested thought, pls share your results

I will post the device list with compatibility soon till then you have to hit and try different version on your device.

Regarding high CPU usage on streaming and missing live555 support , this is something I have to debug , will update you soon.

Finally , If you feel mplayer port is useful please donate :) , It will help me to make Mplayer more useful and powerful.

Hi amitv_17! Great work.
I am russian. When I try to open file with russian name, your plays said that can't find this file, and show me on screen abracadabra, not russian name me the file I try.
Your player don't understand russian font symbols.

Hi,

Absolutely amazing! :)
Are the codecs all written in software? Or do you use hardware acceleration?

I'm running it on both my Kaiser and Vox. I tried a few flash video files and a mpeg4 file. They all worked well. Unfortunately I got an error when streaming mpeg4 via rtsp. The errors are:
"Server returned 400: Bad request" and then "no stream found to handle url rtsp://192.168.1.26:7070"

With VLC player I can play this stream without problems. Any solution?

And before I forget, let me know your palpay address then I will send you a donation :)

Cheers

Hi JockyW

I am currently too busy. I will make the website up by next week. Does port 7070 is correct for your rtsp link , try with 80 as mplayer doesnt try port 80 by default.

Yes the unicode support is missing currently ,so you have to rename the files to or wait for some time , I will make unicode available.

It uses realplayer binary codecs optimized for ARM , for some rm files you need to overclock your Phone.

Great, you support RealOne? Do you also plan to support HTTP to stream RealOne, as opposed to RTSP? RealOne's official player doesn't support HTTP tunneling, only RTSP, which means it's useless on many NAT networks.

(Sorry for not trying it myself - I'm very busy with two other articles right now.)

The address and port I use is 100% correct (rtsp://192.168.1.26:7070).
It works in VLC and Quicktime. I'm streaming mpeg4 video via RTSP.

Just made a donation :)

Any ideas about releasing source code ??

    mPlayer Issues

    I watch iPlayer almost every other day on my Touch Pro 2.
    However, I have noticed a few problems.

    • Video stops playing in 5 minute segments. Buffer stays at 0%
    • Audio level is extremely low. Forced to use headset.

    I noticed mPlayer automatically asked for an update recently, all it did was change the app icon. Would have hoped these problems would have been fixed.

    Anyone else experiencing these problems?

    * I'm using the default streaming application that comes on TP2.
