About MPLayer

Hey, I have got to a web site that explain how to install everything of youtube clone, but that site explain very less, and makes many mistake…
I have installed the most part (but not important part), but when i came to this part, I am stuck…

MPlayer + Mencoder
wget http://www3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/essential-20061022.tar.bz2
tar -xf essential-20061022.tar
essential-20061022 $HOME/lib
wget http://www3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/MPlayer-1.0rc1.tar.bz2
bunzip2 MPlayer-1.0rc1.tar.bz2
tar -xf MPlayer-1.0rc1.tar
cd MPlayer-1.0rc1

Until here, it’s good, but all the code below can’t be execute… Is there any mistake? Can anyone relayout the line below… please… Look at the “–” before the “with” and the “-” before “codecsdir”, is not the same “-” right?

./configure –prefix=$HOME
make install

Please help… Thanks… If I have money, I would pay for the installation, and not asking here, so don’t tell me to pay off for the installation…

Nobody could answer to this question? That means no body install the youtube clone on all Dreamhost web site?

I hope you put the ./configure on the same line as the -with-codecsdir statement. In your post, it’s split into two lines.

Since you mentioned it, the hyphens don’t look the same. They should both be just the minus key. The same one you use in the tar -xvf command. And it should be the same for the -prefix=$HOME.


OK, I did what you said, that’s what I did before too.

./configure -prefix=$HOME -with-codecsdir=$HOME/lib/essential20061022

But, when I press Enter, it said:

OK, I got it… It suppose to be…

./configure --prefix=$HOME --with-codecsdir=$HOME/lib/essential20061022

No one told me huh?

Anyway, but finally, my OSTUBE doesn’t detect that there’s a MPlayer and Mencoder installed. What happen?
