    Mplayer Help Plz

    well i am running PCBSD
    The way i installed it was through the ports

    make clean

    then when i go to /usr/local/bin/ and do mplayer it works

    so i have a movie and i did mplayer /home/name/movie.avi

    did you link your osd fonts into the directory in the readme?

    i think so i linked a TrueType font to ~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf
    thats what got rid of the error that said i was missing subfont.ttf

    But it still doesent run

    The output is normal, there is no problem, I don't see any error message !!
    if you ask about :
    Compiled with runtime CPU detection - WARNING - this is not optimal!
    To get best performance, recompile MPlayer with --disable-runtime-cpudetection.
    This is a normal warning. The precompiled binaries cannot be compiled with optimization for certain processor. It has to be probed at runtime, when configuring they use "--enable-runtime-cpudetection" so it is probed at runtime ! But the mplayer team says that it is not perfect ! That's it.

    Are you sure that movie is not corrupted? Does it play any other videoclips, same or different format? Or does any other player play that video?
