Well, I think smplayer is way superior, but mplayer-gui has now seen upstream some development boost due to a fresh blood. For debian, we need to investigate why it fails to build against a shared libswscale, check the upstream status on that situation and ideally backport the fix to the debian package. > I am afraid that the obsolete mplayer-gui package keeps lurking on > user's systems, although it is empty and obsolete... Obsolete packages should be dealt with at some higher level, IMO. -- Gruesse/greetings, Reinhard Tartler, KeyID 945348A4 _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
