An open source media player originally developed for Linux in 2000 and later for Windows and Mac. Supporting a wide variety of media formats, MPlayer can also save streaming media for subsequent local playback. The standard MPlayer is downloaded as source code and uses a command line interface; however, numerous graphical interfaces (skins) are available.
Precompiled "unofficial" versions ready to execute are also available for the major platforms as well as minor ones such as DOS and the TomTom GPS. For more information, visit www.mplayerhq.hu.
