Guide to MPlayer

Mplayer for WindowsMplayer was conceptualized as a multimedia player for Linux. However, its ease of use and great features soon made it available for several other platforms including Windows and Mac. Mplayer is a free and open source program whose source code can be viewed by anyone.

Just like Winamp (another open source, cross platform multimedia player), the Mplayer too is supported by several developers around the world who contribute regularly to make it a better and popular player. Please do not confuse Mplayer with Windows Media Player. The latter (mplayer2.exe) is a part of Windows OS and is not cross-platform. This guide to Mplayer attempts to collect all articles on the topic to bring you comprehensive information, accessible from a single place.
