playing media on linux

Post by mwieder » Fri Jul 29, 2022 2:41 am

I've had some success playing videos on linux now using mplayer.
Had to trick it, of course, by placing a substack over an invisible player object.
No onscreen controls but I can pause, unpause, and stop a playing video by sending commands to the process.

When I tried including a sample video in the zip file and the Supid Web Forum software complained that the file was too large.
Yes, it's a kludge, but I hope this is useful to someone.
