Re: Great job and a question
That would be aweseome. I hate to say it, but I have been thinking about going M$ Home Media Center Edition. They just announced suppord for a 200 DVD carousel. That would be a great addition to MPlayer.

Great job and a question
Alex, great job on MPlayer. Any interest in supporting some kind of DVD carousel control via RS232 or something?

mplayer playlist
mplayer seems to support everything and plays great, but the playlist in the gui is pretty clunky. be great if someone could incorporate a rythmbox xml database style playlist into mplayer, makes it easy to load files and urls. maybe someone could hack in the rhythmbox playlist itself as a plugin? or would it break the the cross platform thing?

i am using the latest version of mplayer i find the playlist dosen't have drag n drop feature from kde . this makes it really bad for someone used to playing audio in winamp , each time going thru the add file process, and is there any way to have an enque right click option.
