What is Mplayer?
mPlayer is a free media player and is one of the emerging media players in the industry that is finally making its mark. Not only is it free, but it is also an open source software, meaning its source code (the foundation of its software) is open to anyone, and it can be edited, improved or enhanced by anyone who knows how to code such software. mPlayer is also available for major operating systems: Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, and Linux, plus other operating systems based on Linux and Unix-based systems, plus OS/2, AmigaOS, Syllable, AROS Research Operating System and MorphOS; it can even work on DOS using the HX DOS Extender (Microsoft Windows version only). mPlayer has been ported to several devices as well using third-party community plugins, including one on the Amazon Kindle.
mPlayer looks a little like the VLC Media Player and has inherited the latter's ability to play any type of media content known to most users, and even save streamed media content to a file on the local machine. mPlayer also supports a companion application, called mEncoder, which is primarily used for streaming content input and transcode it to several output formats, with a few additional video transforms in the process.
