Install MPlayer Standalone

Popular Media Player for LINUX based distributions, MPlayer now comes with all useful codecs.

  • Just Download MPlayer Standalone from here.
  • Extract mplayer-standalone-yyyy-mm-dd.tar.bz2 using Archive Manager or just right click on the file and click “Extract Here”.
  • Double Click on the file ‘install’ and press “Run in Terminal”

That’s all. It will install Gnome MPlayer as a Front-end. To play ANY media file from local or network [smb://], just open the file with Gnome-MPlayer.
You can ENCODE videos using ‘MEncoder’ which is installed with the bundled package.
Sample Scripts are given in a folder “Mencoder_script”.
