MPlayer2 Is Still Being Actively Developed

Filed under
Software

phoronix.com: MPlayer2 -- a fork of the popular MPlayer open-source project that's added on several new features -- has been quiet for a few months but is still being actively developed.

The discussion surrounding MPlayer2 was resurrected in the Phoronix Forums this past week. One Phoronix reader immediately jumped to say that "Mplayer2 is dead. Nothing new for 11 months now." and to also criticize the program for the lack of supporting the (outdated) MPEG-1 format.

While some may think it's dead, the MPlayer fork is still being actively developed.
