Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 469123
missing package for mplayer
Last modified: 2008-11-12 04:16:09 EST
Description of problem:
mplayer is not included in the package list.
Did fedora drop the support for this tool?
It is a good tool and it is very hard to install it manually from rpmseek or other sites. Ok it has only a text based user interface, but it works for so many formats easyly where other tools don't work or require non free licences.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install mplayer
mplayer is not packaged for fedora, but you can find it on https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/WishList
You may be able to find it packaged for fedora in external repositories.

I'm not sure, but there could be is a (licensing) reason why mplayer is not packaged in Fedora. Fortunately there are several external repositories that contain mplayer and all needed dependencies.
As this is not a bug (against gstreamer, or any other package) I will close this issue.
