 An MPlayer project update

"I'm not sure if MPlayer will help people find their way into Linux. As a command-line player, it is more for advanced users who don't mind typing options to get things done. GIMP and OpenOffice.org are both apps that run under X and they both can be used in ways similar to proprietary Windows products. I hope the new external MPlayer front ends developed during recent months will change this situation a bit. One thing I noticed during the last year, however, is that there is an increasing demand for LiveCDs that include MPlayer, to use special hardware features like MPEG decoders that are not yet supported in the Windows version."
