Audio,Video player for Linux and Solaris

I am using fedora 7 and solaris XDE 9/07. I am using 'mplayer' in linux system since long. It can play almost all audio and video formats. If you want to download it in your linux system , simply execute the following command to get it via subversion :

#svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer

Update using :

#cd /mplayer
#svn update

Install mplayer in easy steps :

#./configure
#make
#make install

Mplayer is now installed in your system. Check "man mplayer" for necessary instructions. If you want to play a media file using 'mplayer' ,follow the steps :
'open with..' --> browse --> choose 'mplayer' from installation directory (/mplayer).

"MPlayer" is also available for solaris. Simply execute

#pkg-get -i mplayer

If you want to play a media file using 'mplayer' ,follow the steps :
'open with..' --> browse --> choose 'gmplayer' from /opt/csw/bin.

That's all !! use mplayer and enjoy !!
