Recently I've installed Fedora 25 on my new laptop. To my unpleasant surprise I'm not able to find gnome-mplayer package in repositories. Not even with RPM Fusion enabled.

Is that some kind of error on either side or native mplayer gui for gnome is no longer supported? MPlayer is my favourite video player and native gnome gui is nice touch making it even more useful.


The package looks like is orphaned/retired : https://admin.rpmfusion.org/pkgdb/package/free/gnome-mplayer/ .

  • Do you know what that mean? Nobody just had time to package it or the project got dead? Apparently I am not good at searching such informations. – gjask Dec 10 '16 at 13:54

    Sadly it appears to be the latter case. pkgs.rpmfusion.org/cgit/free/gnome-mplayer.git/commit/… – gjask Dec 10 '16 at 14:19
  • An alternative that I can recommend is mpv. It has most, if not all, functions of mplayer, along with a few new ones. – Mioriin Dec 27 '16 at 16:06
