Mpui - Media Player Similar To VlC
« on: August 06, 2006, 10:40:21 AM »
MPlayer is arguably the best media player application of the world. Is is almost strictly monolithic, which means that it mainly consists of a single 7 MB executable that already contains all necessary codecs – for most files, it does not need any external codecs to be installed. If you want to know more about this wonderful program, please visit the MPlayer homepage.

MPlayer and MPUI, when teamed up, offer the following features:

A media player with a clean and simple interface.
Plays hundreds of different video and audio formats, including MPEG-1, -2 and -4 (DivX), H.264, MP3, Ogg Vorbis and AAC. For most media files, no additional codecs are needed. (This is because MPlayer is not one of the uncounted DirectShow players – the codecs are directly integrated into MPlayer.exe.)
MPUI and MPlayer together are just about 3.5 MB in size.
The most important MPlayer options (aspect ratio, deinterlacing, and postprocessing) can be configured without typing in cryptic command-line options. (But if you want or need some non-standard options, you can still add them by hand.)
Support for multiple audio and subtitle tracks on DVDs.
Combines MPlayer's cool keyboard navigation with a mouse-controlled seekbar.
Plays files, network streams and discs (such as (S)VCD or DVD). Drag&Drop supported.
Multilingual user interface.
No installation is required to use MPUI/MPlayer. Simply copy the two .exe files into a directory of your choice an run MPUI.
Using a special autorun.inf file, self-playing DivX CDs can be made. This adds only 3.5 MB to your CD, and on the computer playing the disc, no codecs need to be installed.
Both programs are free, licensed under the GNU General Public License.

i've tried the mplayer/mpui combination and i found it a little unstable. a few files would make it lock up completely, so i gave up with it - i've no doubt that other users will have no trouble with it at all - just depends on what you push through it.
