This is a stand-alone RA-GUI/launcher for all MPlayers for AmigaOS4.

The GUI is pretty straight forward. Hold you mouse over any gadget
to get a short explanation of what it is for. If still uncertain;
see the MPlayer documentation or type "MPlayer -help" in a shell.

News & Changes
* NEW * More aggressive skip loop filter setting, to make H264 less painful: 
-lavdopts fast:skiploopfilter=all:skipframe=nonref

* NEW * When clicking the Next button to play the next video, it tries a hundred
numbers before giving up. Over there are gaps in the numbers, like pictures in
between, or clips removed.

* FIX * Fixed mplayer unable-to-pause using the 'p' button. Now not calling
arexx command getTimePos when Control Panel isn't open.

* FIX * "Fixed screen title." it says in the change log..? The Control Panel
shows the path of the current video.

1.60 (160128)
** Finally fixed the control panel arexx commands for those video drivers that
has proper arexx handling implemented.

** Realtime control panel sliders for seeking and volume. It doesn't seek only
after you let go of the slider, like before. Note: Not all video drivers
supports it.

** MPlayer-GUI now gets the available audio and video drivers from MPlayer
itself to make sure only available drivers are presented in the GUI. It does
this by executing "mplayer -vo help -ao help".

** Added wpa video driver to default video drivers.

** Time display in the control panel.

** Fixed the unfreed signals on exit.

1.54 (150227)
* Revert a change made to how CLI output was handled.

* Properly set NP_ProgramDir after NP_HomeDir was made obsolete. This cause
MPlayer to not find its font or config.

* Fixed a bug that saved the prefs everytime Stop was clicked.

* Added "crashed on me" when pressing stop again after 4 secs.

* Fixed the help-popups and made them more similar in style with the argument

* Renamed a few tabs and moved a few settings to better locations.

1.53 (141031)
* Added a chooser for dvd/dvdnav since newer MPlayers work better
  with dvd instead of dvdnav.

* Added the new comp_yuv and comp_yuv2 video outputs for the new RadeonHD
v2-enabled mplayer.

* Added webm file type and reordered the file pattern list.

* Reinserted the old cgx_vmem in case someone has a machine where this works

* Moved the "Show MPlayer output" setting to the main page for easier access.

* Added "# = Switch language" to the key help page.

* New modern banner and icons by Tommysammy. Thanks! :)

* Added X1000 sb600*.devices for CD/DVD.

* Fixed the Control panel Full screen menu item.

* Added cgx_wpa and comp video modes.

* Added skiploopfilter for faster HD playback.

* Fixed XML encoding for reserved chars.

* Made it possible to drag'n'drop files to the playlist.
  Dropping a file on any other page than the playlist page would
  put the file in the normal file field.

* Created a way to queue dropped files. If you drag'n'drop a file
  while another file is playing it will be queued to be played
  when the current file is finished. This requires that the "Auto
  play on drag'n'drop" is enabled.

* Added a Next button. Clicking this button will try to find a
  number in the current file and increase this number. It will
  automatically play the new filename if "Auto play on drag'n'drop"
  is enabled.
  Very useful when watching a series of files but without having
  them in a pre-made playlist.

* Added an OSD setting so MPlayer can be started with a specific On-Screen

* Updated file patterns a bit.

* Changed arexx handling and allocation of argstrings.

v1.47 (091211)
* Made use of application.library which now also takes care
  of sending the filenames to an already opened MPlayer-GUI.

* Found a cool feature in intuition. Have compositing enabled
  and you can't miss it ;-)

v1.46 (091119)
* It is now possible to start MPlayer-GUI with arguments from
  CLI, or shift-clicking from Workbench and instead of opening
  another MPlayer-GUI, the file name(s) will be set in the
  MPlayer-GUI that is already open.

* Added a Stop button. Very useful if you started an audio-stream
  which doesn't have a window that you can close.

* Added #?.flv to the default file pattern.

* Now sets default values if prefs could not be loaded.

* Fixed the requester that shows if MPlayer couldn't be found.

v1.45 (090302)
* Added a Load and Save function to the playlist so it can be
  saved and loaded.

* Using expat.library now instead of linking it in. Cut the
  executable size in half :)

* Fixed a few incorrect default values.

v1.44 (090120)
* Added a few aspect parameters to be able to force the display
  driver into displaying any movie with correct aspect in full
  screen even if the monitor is not the same aspect as the movie.

  Set the Expand Filter to the aspect of your monitor to fix
  full screen for the default (p96_pip) video driver. This does
  not work with the SDL driver.

  Set the Monitor Aspect parameter to the aspect of you monitor
  if you are using the SDL video driver. The p96_pip driver
  ignores this parameter.

* Added a Movie Aspect parameter that can be used if the movie
  itself has the wrong aspect to force it into having another

* Added start volume and max volume settings.

Thanks to
