MPlayer, a video/audio player ported to the Zipit 2
This release was compiled in Scratchbox with the following ./configure options. This is based of the MPlayer 1.0 RC1 source with a couple tweaks to work around linking issues.
CFLAGS= ./configure --enable-fbdev --enable-static --charset=US-ASCII --enable-theora
First, you'll need a shell environment to run MPlayer in. Then, copy the "mplayer" executable (in the archive attached to this page) to the "bin" folder on the SD card.
Once the Zipit 2 is booted with your SD card, enter "mplayer" into the terminal, along with the multimedia file you want it to play. The best options to use MPlayer with on the Zipit 2 are the following:
mplayer (multimedia filename) -vo fbdev -vf rotate=2,scale=240:320
Remember to replace "(multimedia filename)" with the name of the file you want to play.
