#1044 new defect

gmplayer vo does not autodetect

Reported by: mennucc1@… Owned by: ib
Priority: normal Component: GUI
Version: HEAD Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc: ib
Blocked By: Blocking:
Reproduced by developer: Analyzed by developer:



some time ago I changed the Debian package, so that, when it installs, it does not put a line "vo=" into /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf . The idea is that, without such a line, 'mplayer' will try a sensible list of vo-s, and choose the best. (I seem to remember that it was Diego that suggested me to do so).

Unfortunately, this seems to break 'gmplayer'. In absence of that line, when the configs ~/.mplayer/gui.conf are not present, when 'gmplayer' is run for the first time it sets vo=xmga in ~/.mplayer/gui.conf (and this will be wrong in 99% of the case, nowadays).

I think it would be more sensible if 'mplayer' and 'gmplayer' would behave the same.

thannks in advance. a.

Could you please check with a recent version?

The GUI currently only creates a vo_driver entry in ~/.mplayer/gui.conf if there is a vo entry in the MPlayer config file or if -vo is given on the command line.
