for all of you who are longing for new features and capabilities of
our mplayer port, you can find the latest snapshot of the new port for
testing at

It contains the drop-in replacements for multimedia/mplayer and
mencoder as well as the infamous x264 patch in case one wants to test
x264 encoding with mencoder. Note that there is some manual tweaking
to do in order to test this (e.g. define log2f / use gcc 4.4 etc, see
for details)

Changes since the last version (Jan 17th):
- Video4Linux support for webcam owners

If there are no showstopper issues with this version I am going to
request committing it to the ports tree soon.

Best regards
