Don't Marillats's packages work? I haven't had any problems with his
mplayer ever since I installed it, and I've always used unstable
version for btoh, debain and his packages (now available only through
hard coded version name, aka sid, etch, sarge), and I keep upgrading
at least once a week...
For installing Marillat's packages there are several things:
1. Apt sources:
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ <code_name> main
Follow Marillat's page instructuions (http://debian.video.free.fr).
Maybe I'm wrong and there are problems with Marillat's packages I'm
not aware of, and if that's the case, apologyze my post...
