Oh yah, I remembered what the other thing was on MPlayer — dvdnav support is back in. Duh. How could I miss that one?
The use flag is masked, so you’ll have to unmask it to use it, but if you do it will pull in the forked libdvdnav and libdvdread as a dependency. After that, you can use mplayer dvdnav:// to get funky, sexy menus when watching DVDs. Whee!
Here’s how to unmask a use flag:
mkdir -p /etc/portage/profile/
echo media-video/mplayer -dvdnav >> /etc/portage/profile/package.use.mask
Then just set enable the dvdnav use flag for the package as normal. Personally, I like flagedit.
flagedit media-video/mplayer dvdnav
