how about mplayer ww?

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

how about mplayer ww?

#1 Post by the_watcher » Wed Apr 07, 2010 2:49 am

has anyone tried WW MPlayer / MPlayer WW?
it is another fork of mplayer + a gui with a lot of options + cool skins. i think it is portable, too.

it is hosted at sourceforge. the link is :
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mplayer-ww/

i tried to add it to the database a while ago, but i still don't see it, so i guess i don't have the rights(?) yet, so, please, if someone else wants, he may submit this.

You added it! But it won't be in the viewable database until it has received 10 points (number on the right side.)

To view all entries, in the search box type [@] and click 'Search' OR [@] NAME OF APPLICATION e.g. [@] MPLayer

I guess so.
All the .ini files are in the right place from the beginning, nothing is written outside its own folder and no unusual registry keys!
And it is distributed as an archive.

The "QuickTime X for DirectX" skin is outrageous! :)

The filesize is pretty decent as well compared to VLC and other MPlayer-based players.
is it stealth? ;)

This has got to be one of the better media players out there. Decent size (compared to others) with some pretty niffy features.

Not completely stealth. When playing a DVD with CSS protection, saves DVD data in %userprofile%/.dvdcss/.

When playing a DVD with CSS protection, saves DVD data in %userprofile%/.dvdcss/.
My %userprofile%/.dvdcss/ had many folders inside and I've been wondering which program was doing that :!:

But here's an odd thing... I quite certain I haven't played any DVDs with CSS protection with Mplayer WW. Played non-protected DVDs yes, Ripped yes, but no play.

So can someone else confirm freakazoid's comment? Thanks!

*EDIT*
Just did a quick test and it's not just DVDs with CSS... it's any DVD! Bummer! :?

*EDIT II*
Seems like it's not just Mplayer WW that does this. I'm reading that VLC and some ripping programs also leave a similar folder behind. :cry:

If you use VLC Portable by portableapps.com, you don't have to worry about this.

The folder Mplayer generates resides in %userprofile% and the folder is ".dvdcss" not "dvdcss" like VLC.

thank you freakazoid for the useful info.

for me, it's stealthy enough.

i just make a note of the folder created.

i am making a switch to this, no more CyberLink!

The current version SVN-r33538 seems to have broken DVD playback from disc or folder (Win 7 64bit).

There's some type of horizontal flicker; maybe a 3:2 pulldown issue or something.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I rolled back to SVN-r33064 and it's working again.

There's still problems with DVDNav so I have to disable it - [ Option > Preferences > Player > No DVD Menu Support ]

I think I may roll back to SVN-r32800 as I remember this version being stable (at least on Vista 32bit).
