from this thread we have 4 candidates to maintain mplayer:
Julian Sikorski which maintain the gnome-mplayer.
I (Sérgio Basto) which co-maintain smplayer.
Richard Shaw , which helps if it is need it (and have more admin
Joseph D. Wagner which wish a mplayer updated.
A little note: I though that was updated, for me mplayer with 18 months
is updated :) I saw for the first time real HD (mkv) in my laptop with
current mplayer on rpmfusion.
we got ffmpeg-0_10
who begging packaging ? or how we organize ourselves?
I will pick ffmeg 0.10 compile for F16 and try update mplayer on F16
