    AFAIK, mplayer1 had "nothing new" for several years. Both mplayer1 and mplayer2 are intended to be built from the SVN/Git source code. There are no releases.

    Fine, fine. So its just their homepage that's dead. Really not the most encouraging thing, but maybe they can still pull through with some mpeg-1, VA-API support.

    Actually RealINC is right, I forgot to see the changelog.Debian.gz. This is what it says :-

    Code:
    /usr/share/doc/mplayer2$ zcat changelog.Debian.gz | less
    
    
    mplayer2-dmo (1:2.0~git20111203-0.2) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * debian/control Added "Provides: mplayer".

    mplayer2-dmo (1:2.0~git20111203-0.1) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Must conflicts with mplayer packages who doesn't use alternative.

    mplayer2-dmo (1:2.0~git20111203-0.0) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * New git snapshot.
      * Add an alternative for mplayer.

    So actually he is right.

    Kano, you would have to help me because I do not have any idea how this vcdxrip has to be used. I have a series in 7 VCD's which I want to rip and have everything integrated into 1 DVD, that would be cool. I have no idea how to do that.

    Did you try running it without option when you have got a vcd in your drive? Look at "man vcdxrip" if you want to specify a differnet device name or enable verbose mode. it also can work with images.

    Tried it but was unsuccessful. I am/was confused by the various options given in the info line. I just couldn't figure it out. Anyway now it doesn't matter for now I'm downloading the DVD version from some site.

    About mplayer2 though, I did find some more interesting bits. See for e.g. :-

    http://devel.mplayer2.org/browser/?order=date&desc=1 (as can be seen the last commit was just a day old, so cannot say its dead)

    Also saw this :-

    http://devel.mplayer2.org/roadmap

    It seems either these bugs became after the release or were there before but sooner or later s/he (una) does plan to fix things even though his/her e-mail and mailing lists are not working atm.

    I use it all the time and have been for a while. mplayer1 jitters sometimes on vdpau.

    I just think they should change the name and the config files to avoid confusion. I still use mencoder and mplayer1 on occasion. it's relatively very minor and not nearly as important as ordinary HD videos, but mplayer2 seems to occasionally stutter on some oddball videos when using vdpau, like 15fps videos, for example.
