mplayer skin like xbmc?

Postby parti02 » Fri May 15, 2009 8:30 pm

Hi all,
the mplayer skin from xmbc looks very nice i think. There are many options comfortable to configure during watching a film.
VDPAU is running, dvd menues are working and when i start a film second time, xbmc asking "beginning last position?"

Is it possible to integrade this into mms. Perhaps skin colors based on the actually choosen theme.
MMS deliver with such a mplayer version?

I have no idea how much work it is, i am not a programmer, but xbmc is open source, perhaps it is possible to
modify the code for mms and there is no need to write completly new.

What are you thinking?

Gruß
Dirk

It seems that xbmc use it's own player.
http://xbmc.org/wiki/index.php?title=MPlayer

The wiki about the dvd-player is not up to date, it play nearly all formats.
Xbmc is also available as a live-cd, try out and you will see it is a realy great player with a realy nice skin.

When the code changes are to big, i can imagine it is impossible to integrade it into mms every new version again.
Perhaps, there are any solutions. Mms will look more complete with an own player, i think.
