How to find the command line version of MPlayer
Authored by: colinng on Feb 12, '07 05:44:55AM
Download MPlayer for Mac OS X from
The easiest way to use the command line is to make a symlink to the binary.
Straight out of the MPlayer OS X Help, under Tips and Tricks:
----------
To use the command line version of mplayer without any hussle, we suggest you create a link to the binary file contained in the MPlayer OSX.app bundle. To do that, just type the following into your terminal:
ln -s /Applications/MPlayer OSX.app/Contents/Resources/External_Binaries/mplayer.app/Contents/MacOS/mplayer /usr/local/bin/mplayer
This will create a symlink to the mplayer command line binary, and place it into /usr/local/bin. (You can place it anywhere you like, but traditionally, user made binaries, that are not part of the distribution are placed in /usr/local/bin)
