Good evening,

at this location

you find the first preview of the port update to mplayer for the
current release 1.0pre8.
The pre8 release is a quite heavy update with some extensive changes,
so is the port. I'd like to take this upgrade as an opportunity to make
use of the OPTIONS framework for mplayer builds.
So please grab this tarball, extract it to somewhere in the ports tree
and give it a go; and finally please keep me posted about uncomfortable
issues, problems, things I might have forgotten and so on. We want to
keep as many happy mplayer users as possible :-)


P.S. Most likely I won't be checking mails until Monday, so no need to
hurry. Of course suggestions and especially patches are highly
appreciated :-)
