An easy but powerfully GUI for the mplayer from mplayerhq. One of the best mediaplayer opensource.
Play the most videos without external codecs.
mplayer is a movie player for Linux (runs on many other platforms and
CPU architectures, see the documentation). It plays most MPEG/VOB,
AVI, ASF/WMA/WMV, RM, QT/MOV/MP4, Ogg/OGM, MKV, VIVO, FLI, NuppelVideo,
yuv4mpeg, FILM and RoQ files, supported by many native and binary
codecs. You can watch Video CD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5 and even
WMV movies, too.
MPlayer supports a wide range of video and audio output drivers. It
works with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, libcaca, Di-
rectFB, Quartz, Mac OS X CoreVideo, but you can also use GGI, SDL (and
all their drivers), VESA (on every VESA-compatible card, even without
X11), some low-level card-specific drivers (for Matrox, 3dfx and ATI)
and some hardware MPEG decoder boards, such as the Siemens DVB, DXR2
and DXR3/Hollywood+. Most of them support software or hardware scal-
ing, so you can enjoy movies in fullscreen mode.
MPlayer has an onscreen display (OSD) for status information, nice big
antialiased shaded subtitles and visual feedback for keyboard controls.
European/ISO8859-1,2 (Hungarian, English, Czech, etc), Cyrillic and Ko-
rean fonts are supported along with 12 subtitle formats (MicroDVD, Sub-
Rip, OGM, SubViewer, Sami, VPlayer, RT, SSA, AQTitle, JACOsub, PJS and
our own: MPsub) and DVD subtitles (SPU streams, VOBsub and Closed Cap-
mencoder (MPlayer’s Movie Encoder) is a simple movie encoder, designed
to encode MPlayer-playable movies (see above) to other MPlayer-playable
formats (see below). It encodes to MPEG-4 (DivX/XviD), one of the
libavcodec codecs and PCM/MP3/VBRMP3 audio in 1, 2 or 3 passes. Fur-
thermore it has stream copying abilities, a powerful filter system
(crop, expand, flip, postprocess, rotate, scale, noise, RGB/YUV conver-
sion) and more.
