Hi Bill,Juha , Josh and pabola Thanks for all your feedback, It gave the best insight and understanding.
This is what I did , because even after I had removed the quick time using make config on win32-codecs directory It was giving me some more errors it it could not find file while downloading(when I issued make install in /usr/ports/multimedia/win32-codecs), so I went ahead and downloaded manually download win32-codecs.tar.gz file from ports directory http://freebsd.org/ports/multimedia website, replaced with this new win32-codecs. That made the rest of mplayer successful. Then I bumped into the issue of sound /dev/dsp error I fixed with reading the http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/sound-setup.html( this I felt is the good help for anyone having sound issues) did that # sysctl hw.snd.pcm0.vchans=4 # sysctl hw.snd.maxautovchans=4 took care of the sound issue. (does anyone know how automatically download the current specific port, I know portupgrade -a runs, but it runs endlessly forever) Thanks Dak On 1/4/07, Bill Moran <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

You can get mplayer installed safely by deselecting the quicktime codec during the installation process. To change it now, do the following: cd /usr/ports/multimedia/win32-codecs && make config Then deselect quicktime from the menu and save your change. Then go back to building mplayer and it should succeed. -Bill
