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.

Removing the configuration example?

I noticed that removing examples is becoming quite common, but in this case I think is fairly unfair. The example in the manpage (or the link) is almost a joke (e.g., flip=yes seriously? instead the one in this page was fairly good with also some non obvious configurations (e.g., the audio up/down mix). Can I put it back?

Please add a link to the edit that you don't agree with. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 06:53, 9 April 2015 (UTC)Reply
I'm guessing at [1] (odd to mention this almost 1 year later). I'm against re-adding it verbatim - syntax tends to change, chosen options are subjective, and descriptions duplicate the manual most of the time. I suppose you could add it to a gist and link to it from the article. -- Alad (talk) 12:53, 9 April 2015 (UTC)Reply
