Do you have libchm installed? If you have a package based system like ubuntu, debian, suse, fedora, etc, you also have to install the libchm-dev or -devel package as well. - Jun 17 2007

I like the idea here....But I get a seg fault when I press the download button.

It seems to fetch all the trailers available just fine but seg faults no matter what is selected for download. Also....maybe I missed this in the README......didn't read it....Doh! But the apple radio button is grayed out. - May 19 2007

First, thanks for the great app! It will be my default video player!

I have a home theater pc hooked to my surround sound system via sp/dif. When I play an avi file encoded with 5.1 AC3 audio, smplayer chooses to play with liba52 codec which only gives me stereo sound. I can select HWAC3 in advanced media settings for audio codec and the sound comes alive with pure digital 5.1 surround.

Now, I would have thought that this setting would be "learned" and applied to all AC3 5.1 avi files, but it isn't.

I also noted that I had to manually find the proper audio codec for a few movie (avi) files....I think they were mp3 audio.

Strangly, when I tried to run an AC3 5.1 file through mplayer from the command line, it console output indicated it was 2 channel....and it selects liba52 codec....Maybe I need to fix this in mplayer????

Can anyone help me here? - Mar 21 2007
