MPlayer SB for Windows (Updated 07 May 2016)

I started releasing these builds in 2011 and they have been used by over 10 million users via Universal Media Server and PS3 Media Server. I'm also on the MPlayer development team.

My main focus with these builds is on MEncoder stability, since that is what we use for the media server transcoding, so each release is thoroughly tested to transcode and mux from and to many formats.
Specifically, the stability of outputting H.264 via x264 and MPEG-2 with AC-3 and DTS variants inside MPEG-PS, and WMV with WMA inside ASF, as well as handling different DVD and subtitle inputs.

Do SB builds support AviSynth (.avs) scripts?

I fed an AviSynth script to MPlayer and nothing happens. No error message .. MPlayer just terminates. MPlayer used to support these scripts (r31878 and earlier). Has this support been dropped? Thanks.

If MPlayer exists without any comment, not even an error message, it probably means that MPlayer has crashed.

Did you run MPlayer from the console or via some GUI? In the latter case, I would suggest to try running it directly from the console, just to be sure...

Thanks for the report, filler. Can you please test SB60 and let me know if that has the bug too?

SB62 is released! The changes since SB61 are:
  • Synchronised with r37352
  • Minimized logspam
  • Updated FFmpeg to 11201bb
  • Updated fontconfig to 2.11.91
  • Updated jpeg to 9a
  • Updated libcdio to 0.93
  • Updated libogg to 1.3.2
  • Updated libpng to 1.6.15

@filler56789 I didn't attempt to fix that issue in SB62 but I noticed there were aspect ratio fixes in the FFmpeg update so can you please re-test? If the bug is still there I'll look into it more for the next release.

Yep, the bug is alive and well.

I think Carl Eugen Hoyos already knows the flaw was discovered by me, so I presume he won't let it be fixed

OK well given that it's a regression, with a bit of luck it will be very easy to fix, I can just rollback that specific change. So first we have to figure out whether it came from FFmpeg or MPlayer. I'll make a test build soon and post it here.

Thanks for the attention ^_^

I have created one more test file, and it appears the regression is in Mplayer's code, not in FFmpeg's;
