Description Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2013-01-16 07:16:45 UTC
smplayer currently does this: || ( media-video/mplayer${MPLAYER_USE} media-video/mplayer2${MPLAYER_USE} )

Since we are moving to libav as the default codec provider, we should prefer mplayer2 since it supports livav, while mplayer hard-depends on ffmpeg.

I will make this change soon if there are no objections.

we are not. ffmpeg and mplayer stays the defaults.

Except we are. The switch has already been made in virtual/ffmpeg-9.

So I have applied this in our latest non-stable ebuild.
