Here you can find everything needed to get MPlayer up and running.
The recommended way to install MPlayer is to compile from current

integrated with your platform.

included graphical user interface.

non-outdated official ones listed below.

We provide nightly Subversion snapshots generated at six in the
morning (GMT+1). They are generally stable and recommended.
If you have issues with them report it, or use Subversion directly
to get a more up-to-date or previous version, or wait for the next
snapshot, it might be fixed by then.
The Subversion snapshots are working directories complete with
Subversion metadata (the result of 'svn checkout'). The source
snapshots are bare sources without Subversion metadata (the result
of 'svn export').
We recommend to use latest SVN always, but currently there is also a reasonably recent release available,
which includes an FFmpeg snapshot.
We keep the
old releases and
of MPlayer, in case anybody is interested.
You can also get MPlayer via Subversion. Issue the following command to
get the latest sources:
svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
A directory named
mplayer will be created in the current directory.
You can later update your sources by typing
from within that directory.
Our Subversion setup does not work over
HTTP/HTTPS, nor will it in the future. If you have trouble
accessing the Subversion repository, then in 99% of all cases
a firewall on your side is the problem. Open TCP port 3690 or
find a machine that can use the svn:// protocol directly.
Another alternative is downloading a Subversion snapshot.

First of all, a big warning: These packages are useless for normal
Windows players and will only work with MPlayer.
Our binary codec packages add support for codecs that are not yet
implemented natively, like newer RealVideo variants and a lot of
uncommon formats. Note that they are not necessary to play most
common formats like DVDs, MPEG-1/2/4, etc.
See the codec status table
for the daily-generated list of currently supported codecs.
Choose the package that matches your processor and operating system.
If your system cannot manage Linux libraries, choose the Windows
package instead. On Windows MPlayer will try to use the codecs
installed on your system. Our packages can save you the hassle of
installing every known codec and using untested codec versions.
Instructions for installing binary codecs can be found in the
README or in
the README.txt file that accompanies each codec package.
If you want to verify the integrity of the codec packages, compare the
