Wow, you're developing it quite fast ;)
I have to ask some questions. Current mplayer has some flaws that are
hard to fix without some redisign, in my opinion. It's not that they are
very important, just that most of other players support all or some of
them, and not having them in mplayer is somewhat annoying.
I wish to know if following features are planning in current mplayer, in
g2 or never:

Changing video filter parameters on the fly (without restarting). That
is supported only by the few of filters now.

Adding new filters on the fly, e.g. turning on deinterlacing (let alone
this is pp option for now) or rotating image, like ffdshow for win is
able to.

Changing video aspect on the fly (imho very annoying not to have this).

Using xmms effect & visualization plugins.

New osd engine.

Full-featured gui, not something which is annoying while playing and has
bugs and misfeatures that non-gui mplayer doesn't have. (There is
nothing I can do without gui and there are things that are impossible in
gui; this means it isn't useful except for cool screenshots).

And what will happen to mencoder in g2, I wonder?
