October 26, 2008 by Sander Nyman

MPlayer version dev-SVN-r27724-OS2-4.3.2 has been released. This OS/2 port is done by KO Myung-Hun. MPlayer is probably the most widely used open source movie player available. It runs on many Operating Systems, including OS/2 thanks to KO Myung-Hun. It can take advantage of OS/2 video
support from SNAP, WarpOverlay!, or DIVE.

Take a moment to look over the included README file for installation, usage and options information. MPlayer, including source code is currently located on Hobbes in the incoming directory:

One of the best (for OS/2) features of MPlayer is it's ability to use Win32 binary codecs, which obviously expands it's versatility greatly. All that is required for use of this feature is the Win32 binary codec package
available here:

To install MPlayer and the codecs package, please see the README documentation in the archive.

MPlayer requires LIBC v0.6.3. In the unlikely event that you do not already have it, you can download it here:
