<SOLVED> Mplayer does not work anymore

Postby Paulon on Sat Mar 24, 2012 6:33 am

Hi, I'm a long term mint user, and I've been using mint 12 lxde for some weeks, I noticied that when I tried to see apple movie trailers I couln't anymore (It worked for about 2 weeks). Later I tried playing a video file with smplayer. It did not play. I used VLC 2 to play it without any problem. I rebooted and tried smplayer again. The same erro message "Mplayer crashed,.. code 127". The log file was:

"/usr/bin/mplayer -noquiet -nofs -nomouseinput -sub-fuzziness 1 -identify -slave -vo xv -ao pulse -nokeepaspect -framedrop -nodr -double -input nodefault-bindings:conf=/dev/null -stop-xscreensaver -wid 33554776 -monitorpixelaspect 1 -ass -embeddedfonts -ass-line-spacing 0 -ass-font-scale 1 -ass-styles /home/raquel/.config/smplayer/styles.ass -fontconfig -font Arial -subfont-autoscale 0 -subfont-osd-scale 20 -subfont-text-scale 20 -subcp ISO-8859-1 -vid 1 -aid 0 -subpos 100 -volume 90 -nocache -ss 788 -osdlevel 0 -vf-add screenshot -slices -channels 2 -af scaletempo,equalizer=0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0 -softvol -softvol-max 110 /media/54F8CD93F8CD7430/xxxx.rmvb

/usr/bin/mplayer: relocation error: /usr/bin/mplayer: symbol ff_codec_bmp_tags, version LIBAVFORMAT_53 not defined in file libavformat.so.53 with link time reference"

I used Synaptic to reinstall Mplayer, without sucess.
Using the terminal to run mplayer displays this message:

"mplayer: relocation error: mplayer: symbol ff_codec_bmp_tags, version LIBAVFORMAT_53 not defined in file libavformat.so.53 with link time reference"

I realize that it's a libavformat.so.53 error. What caused it and what can I do to solve it?

Please help


SOLVED:

I did a little more digging in Google: this bug can be solved by installing mplayer2!!! Now both mplayer and it's browser plugins are working again!!!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
