      wasn't multithreaded h264 already in? i remember some mplayer dev correcting one's similar mistake on the mailing list recently.

        I uniinstalled MPlayer rc1, installed the new one with this configuration: --enable-gui --enable-largefiles --enable-libdca, after running i'm having a lot of segfaults, i can't do anything along watching video, since after doing a minimize, switch or anything else (I mean defocusing the video window), player crashes, should i report a backtrace to mplayer hq, or there is something I'm wrong with?

        My sytem conf: core2 duo, 1Gb ram, ATI X1400 + AIGLX / XGL (both) xorg V7.2

          why don't you try a package install (with rpm or another thing

            I think the problem was with fglrx, I installed Fedora 8, with new 7.11 catalyst, I had no problems, but poor video quality, After sometime, I was dissapointed by fglrx, and switched to opensource version, RadeonHD, which is now doing it's work without any problems.

            Packages seem to be a good thing, but, I prefer to set up MPlayer manually(Just MPlayer)

            Thanks for your advise
