PLease someone help, I havnt got a connection to my ps3. I will have to download all relevent files from my work p.c then tranfare. I am a complete newbie to linux but have it installed. Can someone please guide me clearly on how to get .avi files working in this way? Thanks in advance.
How do you play a 6gb mkv file in the ydl linux ? As were FAT32 drives are limited to 4gb files ?
Did you write it on a dual layer dvd ?
Or is it possible to access a microsoft network for other pc's in the ydl linux ?
or an ext3 formated external hdd.

Remember! When using the -vo fbdev switch it gets kinda hard to use the Linux GUI so use Esc or Q to quit playback. Having a terminal ready to kill the process. Once the file has played youre back to normal though.
Ive read that some ppl are getting x.264 HD movies to play without stuttering using gentoo linux. No guides or anything though.. Im still trying to squeeze a few more fps from x.264. If cant make it happen soon ill wait for someone else to figure it out and start concentrating on getting my PS3 to replace my xbox1 with XBMC.
Things like on-the-fly unraring while streaming from a network share. Ive done it in windows so it should even be easier in linux which has better scripting.
How did you install fbdev? I know it should come with mplayer but it's not there in my mplayer's video output drivers list. best thing in mine is sdl. but i've read everywhere that fbdev is better, but where is it? if i ignore that it's not ony the drivers list and just type -vo fbdev, mplayer launches but when i open a video, i get a failed to initialize error.
Did you do anything special when you compiled mplayer? which version did you compile?

I have the same problem as utrx999. I want to use Hottar's "mplayer -vo fbdev -cache 8192" advice, but i also get an error message because of this fbdef thing. It works with sdl instead of fbdef, but the performance is still "not so good".
Please help me, i wanna watch some movies with a better performance.
