42 <application>MPlayer</application> is a powerful audio/video player
43 controlled via the command line or a graphical interface that is able to
44 play almost every popular audio and video file format. With supported
45 video hardware and additional drivers, <application>MPlayer</application>
46 can play video files without an <application>X Window System</application>
47 installed.

86 <para><application>MPlayer</application> developers recommend using current
87 snapshots. The source tarball shown above was created by the BLFS team by
88 downloading an <application>MPlayer</application> snapshot and an
89 <application>ffmpeg</application> snapshot. To form the final tarball, the
90 <application>MPlayer</application> tarball is uncompressed and the
91 directory renamed. Then, the <application>ffmpeg</application> snapshot is
92 uncompressed into this directory, which is in turn compressed into the
93 tar.xz final format. BLFS made no other changes to the existing source
94 files. The <application>ffmpeg</application> snapshot is required, or a git
95 checkout will be requested at configure time. This is not desired, because
96 both should be obtained at the same date.</para>
