12 Problem with having a devault /etc/mplayer.conf, is that mplayer can
13 have so many different setup's. Should it use SDL, OpenGL, X11, XV,
14 framebuffer dev,etc for video? And what about sound ?
16 I am no .ebuild expert, nor mplayer, although it is the video player
17 I use by default, but am prepared to hack the mplayer .ebuild a bit.
18 All I need is some suggestions as how to handle the .conf file?
20 Do we:
21 1) look for X in USE, if so make libSDL a required depend and install
22 a .conf that use SDL for sound and video (since SDL can make use of
23 accel and also autodetect the sound ...)?
24 2) if ! X in USE, assume that the framebuffer dev will be used and
25 install a .conf accordingly ?
27 This is the easiest way of doing it as far as I can see. X11 do not
28 give decent output, and determining if OpenGL sould be used, or XV, or
29 DGE, etc can be difficult, and since SDL can autodetect this, it should
30 make things easier ... same with audio ....
33 Some suggestions will be appreciated.
