I only use mplayer for watching the odd video on my Yeeloong. I don't run it under X and have added the following to my ~/.mplayer/config file:-

vo=fbdev
ontop=yes
ao=alsa
framedrop=yes
cache=8192
cache-min=4.0

This allows me to watch very small resolution files with the Yeeloong, fairly well.

Many relatively low-res .ogv files that I've tried to play with mplayer play so slowly and buggy that they're hardly watchable at all. This is the output from mplayer:

************************************************
**** Your system is too SLOW to play this! ****
************************************************

Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
- Most common: broken/buggy audio driver
- Try -ao sdl or use the OSS emulation of ALSA.
- Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
- Slow video output
- Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
- Slow CPU
- Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the lavdopts,
e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
- Broken file
- Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
- Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
- Try -cache 8192.
- Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
- Try -nocache.
Read DOCS/HTML/en/video.html for tuning/speedup tips.
If none of this helps you, read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.

One possible way to fix this could be to fix up and package Lemote's optimized version of mplayer for the Yeeloong.

The code is here: <http://dev.lemote.com/cgit/mplayer.git/>

I know it's pretty old and pretty crappy, and I actually wasn't able to compile it myself, but I've read online that it has worked for some people, and although I have since lost the compile logs I remember that the make error was fairly trivial in the code. It would be great to start maintaining this if it actually makes a difference.

If there are any driver issues yet to be fixed in gNS3, I suppose that would be a way to fix this as well.
