Description

Recent MPLayer SVN builds are very slow to start on my PC.

time mplayer
MPlayer SVN-r30722-4.2.4 (C) 2000-2010 MPlayer Team
... a lot of text ...

  • * * SEE THE MAN PAGE FOR DETAILS, FURTHER (ADVANCED) OPTIONS AND KEYS * * *

real 0m1.390s
user 0m0.070s
sys 0m1.083s

That's almost 1.5 seconds to start without any parameters.

I've also noticed that mplayer makes my sound card produce a short click every time it starts - I highly doubt mplayer should touch any hardware when it's being invoked.

strace -c mplayer produces:

Try compiling without OpenAL, they have done some incredibly idiotic things in one of their later releases (like opening ALSA on library load I think).
If it doesn't help, please bug me, this definitely should not happen.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Thank you very much, Reimar!

Compiling mplayer without openal solved the problem.

For anyone using Fedora I've filed a relevant bug report in their bugzilla:
