I would love to see mplayer 1.0 rc2 within ubuntu gutsy, as a exception because of the many updates and fixes.

Not a chance. Approximately 1/3 of the codebase has been modifed, with several hundreds of thousands of lines of diff. mplayer's interpretation of `release candidate' is so incredibly skewed I've no idea what they think they're doing. I almost got it building a couple of nights back, and will upload it to Hardy when it opens. It can be backported once it's there.

William, I haven't seen any activity here from you for a while. Do you mind if I grab this update? I've already started, and can probably have things ready in a few days (i'm adding a few bugs to get fixed in the process too).

I updated the upstream-ubuntu branch already, and i'm pushing my changes to the new "ubuntu" branch.

I'd love to see mplayer 1.0rc2 in gutsy aswell - the h264 codec is faster (by 10% I guess), which makes 720p (even some 1080p!) h264 movies playable on average cpus
