Re: good work
Ran into a little issue with a buffer overflow problem, but they have the solution on this page if anyone else runs into it http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html.
It's just their homepage basically, but was fixed December of last year.

Glad to read this.

Just a note: the (numerous) links at the beginning of each HTML page can clutter the reading. They could perhaps be moved to the end or easily skipped using a "Go to content" link.

Thanks!

Re: [install] Error 127
Your environmental variable is not set. First set the env where your ldconfig is located, then compile it.

It's not like other common players, it's well coded.

I think software patents in general are a huge threat to the whole open source community.

Excellent
I had a video sent from a client and nothing would open it - including VLC. This worked like a charm.

Thanks.
