[solved] no Mplayer2 icon

Postby aljoriz on Tue Oct 18, 2011 8:58 am

I have just installed mplayer2 why?
mplayer / vlc has trouble playing mkv video encoded in 10bit. I really think Mint should ditch mplayer and use mplayer2 as its default player.

Here's my problem:
I don't see a mplayer2 icon under multimedia section of the menu nor do I see it when I right click a file.

any help will be appreciated

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Why not do this:
MintMenu>Preferences>Main Menu>"New Item">
Screenshot-Create Launcher.png
Screenshot-Create Launcher.png (22.24 KiB) Viewed 874 times

That will fix half your problem; the other half would be:
Screenshot-Nautilus Actions Configuration Tool - MD5Sum.png

Yeah, those should do what you are asking.

thanks!

On a flip side, I just discovered I can install SMPlayer and us it as a front end for Mplayer2 simply by changing Option under Preference the Mplayer executable as "mplayer2" (w/o quotes)
