I see a few posts on mplayer / win32-codecs being broken. I just wanted to
share how I got it to compile. I unfortunately do not know how to submit a
fix so that it's corrected in the future, nor the best way to go about it.
However, I would like to share how I got it to build and install:
---Failed to obtain win32-codecs
Went to ftp://ftp3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/
Downloaded win32codecs-20040703.tar.bz2, qt6dlls-20040626.tar.bz2,
qtextras-20040704.tar.bz2, rp9codecs-20040626.tar.bz2, and
xanimdlls-20040626.tar.bz2 to /usr/ports/distfiles/win32
Extracted all 5
Renamed the folders to their names sans the dates. So now I have 5 folders
inside /usr/ports/distfiles/win32: win32codecs, qt6dlls, qtextras,
rp9codecs, and xanimdlls
Now I recompressed all 5 into .tar.bz2 files.
I now removed the folders and the old tar.bz2's from the folder. I now have
5 tar.bz2's in this folder: win32codecs.tar.bz2, qt6dlls.tar.bz2,
qtextras.tar.bz2, rp9codecs.tar.bz2, and xanimdlls.tar.bz2
make install NO_CHECKSUM=yes
ln -s /usr/ports/multimedia/mplayer/work/MPlayer-0.92.1/mplayer
And I am now able to use mplayer / win32-codecs like any other application.
I hope this helps some people. If not, my apologies.
