MPlayer Language & Subtitles

Decirlo En Ingles

The more you use mplayer the greater your appreciation of its power, simplicity, its raw beauty. Its such a fine piece, crafted with a clear philosophy to make it work and make it simple.

Occasionally I use totem, the default movie player with Gnome. Totem trips splutters and falls with some films. MPlayer merely inhales and breezes through them. Its such a great Movie Player.

If you want to watch a movie in a different language using mplayer, do:

mplayer -alang eng movie.avi

Will play movie.avi with eng language

If you want subtitles in spanish, do:

mplayer -slang spa movie.avi

Try it. You'll like it.
