I think the "More codecs" section should be done away with. Since the codecs package is not in the repositories, the one in aur is pretty old and mplayer does not need it. [[User:M l|M l]] 12:10, 5 November 2009 (EST)

Official packages are now built with --enable-xvmc, which makes [[Enable XvMC for NVIDIA video cards]] largely out of date. The remaining useful bits of that article should probably just be merged into the main [[MPlayer]] article.  There's already a section in the [[MPlayer]] article for a similar technology, VDPAU.  If I remember correctly, at some point XvMC was better for AMD/ATI users while VDPAU is better for NVidia users.  I believe the article would be more complete with the inclusion of a XvMC section and some gentle steering toward the right technology for ATI and NVidia users.

I may eventually perform the merge myself, but I'd do so only after some more research. Of course it would be great if someone with MPlayer expertise and experience were to do it first. [[User:James Eder|James Eder]] 12:42, 29 July 2011 (EDT)

Variable needed

I think it might help others who want to play video from the console to know that running 'export SDL_NOMOUSE=1' could be necessary first.
