When I try to install media-video/mplayer (1.0_pre4), he fetch next packages:
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) win32codecs-20031001.tar.bz2
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) rp9win32codecs-20031001.tar.bz2
But if I am try to listen some RealAudio broadcast radio
mplayer -cache 32 rtsp://media1.abc.net.au/encoder/network2.rm
I see next
Error: /usr/lib/real/sipr.so.6.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
opening win32 dll 'sipr.so.6.0'
Win32 LoadLibrary failed to load: sipr.so.6.0, /usr/lib/win32/sipr.so.6.0, /usr/local/lib/win32/sipr.so.6.0
Error loading dll
ERROR: Could not open required DirectShow codec sipr.so.6.0.
Read the RealAudio section of the DOCS!
Opening audio decoder: [realaud] RealAudio decoder
opening win32 dll 'sipr3260.dll'
Btw, i can hear radio stantion, but sound is ugly and volume is too low
Possible solutions, thats works when compile mplayer manually with the same options (when do emerge media-video/mplayer after looking at sipr.so.6.0 - configuration script skip something and error happens again. I am too newbie to find bad line in ebuild file):
use RealAudio codecs pack from http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/rp9codecs.tar.bz2
instead of current
Solution 1.1 (bad)
Add RealAudio codecs from above to rp9win32codecs
Call scripts from /usr/share/doc/mplayer-1.0_pre4/TOOLS/realcodecs
IMHO, All actions must be done (e.g. /usr/lib/win32/sipr.so.6.0 must exist) before running of MPlayer configure script.
The one you listed didn't work, so I tried some from here. My issue is that NONE of them play. I'm going to check out the mplayer codecs you mentioned and see if it does any good. If so, I'll recommend for commit. If not, I'll take it upstream :).
FWIW, the URL to updated codecs is http://ftp3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/
I'm going to do an all in one and post all the ebuilds/etc to bug #53634.
The codecs are implemented using #1 in a USE flag.
Had to work around the codec thingy a bit, but the lastest win32 codecs does
everything ok. I tried triple j since the news part was down, plays just fine, in
fact, plays so fine, I think I'll listen to it some more :P (Testing is fun!).
