adding dvr support to mplayer

Ok, since I still cannot sleep, I am pondering all of the little projects I’ve started over the last few days… and I keep coming back to the MPlayer issue; my Good Eats episodes need re-encoding 😉

I think I am going to try to add the codec manually in stead of submitting a help request. That way I can hopefully submit a working patch in stead of just a bug report. Following the instructions on the site, I think I have the following codec entry to test out.

Feh. I have installed MPlayer, created a working codecs.conf file, and have installed a huge bundle of codecs onto Rincewind – only to realize that I don’t have a video to test with. Tarma is asleep right now and I don’t want to go in and wake up Penny, just in order to play with this (get a file to play with and possibly a dll). So, it looks like we will have to test this later on tomorrow.

Also, it looks like my audit report finally made its way through the mail server, so that’s good.

I think it is finally bed time.
