Hi,

which Linux distribution you are using? for Fedora/Centos you can download the RPM from http://moonshine.freshrpms.net/ and simply install using

Code: Select all

$rpm -ivh mplayer-version.rpm

If you using fedora then just go for yum

Code: Select all

yum install -y mplayer mplayer-gui mplayer-codecs


If using redhat then better install it from source code.
just switch into its source directory and

Code: Select all

./configure && make && make install


if using Ubuntu then just go for apt_get
