Mplayer: the lost video

Way back in May, before dual-boot was released & commands had to be fed to the dingoo via usb, a video demonstrating mplayer running on the Dingoo was posted... and forgotten about.

In the info section he posts all the options he passed to get it working. I was able to successfully compile it using the following (I also had to patch it before compiling to eliminate an error with ivtv):

./configure --disable-langinfo --disable-iconv --disable-vm --disable-mencoder --enable-cross-compile --cc="mipsel-linux-gcc -mips32" --host-cc=gcc --as=/opt/mipseltools/mipsel-linux-as --target=mips-linux --enable-fbdev --disable-fastmemcpy --disable-x11 --disable-xmga --disable-xv --disable-xvmc --disable-libamr_wb --disable-dvdread --disable-md5sum --disable-termcap --disable-live --with-extraincdir=/opt/mipseltools/include --with-extralibdir="/opt/mipseltools/lib: /opt/mipseltools/mipsel-linux/lib" --disable-libavutil_so --disable-libpostproc_a --disable-libpostproc_so --disable-libavcodec_mpegaudio_hp --disable-mad --disable-toolame --disable-twolame --disable-libmpeg2 --disable-musepack --disable-liba52 --disable-pthreads --disable-ass --disable-fastmemcpy --disable-dvb --disable-dvbhead --disable-alsa --disable-pnm --disable-tv-v4l2 --disable-tv-v4l1 --disable-radio-v4l2 --disable-ivtv --enable-fbdev --enable-directfb --enable-static
When I go to run it however (must pass -vo fbdev fyi) I get an error along the lines of 'line 1 syntax error unexpected "(" '. Evidently I'm not the only one running into this error; Yoannd26 stated via IRC that he has run into this many times while trying to port games. So, I'd like to use a street shout-out: If anyone knows a solution or can get it compiled & working themselves, please don't hesitate to let us know (I'm sure we're all clamouring to watch some anime on that gorgeous little screen ;]).

(P.S. Don't forget to --enable-ass again when you're done, lol)

  1. This would be great -- the native Dingoo player doesn't play mp4s, which cut out most of the video podcasts I'd watch.
