It wouldn't be wasted at all, as far more people would be able to use it, and more would work on it. It's more of the same, with you being unwilling to do anything that benefits others, if it might be a little extra work for you... How's the GUI developing? How well does your fork compile with GCC-2.95, or ICC? How's your fork's performance on a 133MHz PC?

I see. So you've chosen option B. All those comitting to SVN, they aren't developers... and if they were, those changes can just get pulled into the GIT repo, because SVN will always be there, and they won't mind switching over to your fork when the time comes, right? It's almost ironic that you use that as an excuse, since you personally chased away several active MPlayer developers some time ago (you dismissed their important contributions then, too), and subsequently lost your commit access to ffmpeg for your typical behavior. I should have taken the hint back then. The whole community seems to changed from a fun and exciting place, into a bit of a death-march. Output to formats other than AVI would be a dammed nice feature, but with Michael and Rich gone, no sign that it will ever get fixed. It seems everyone's treading water until, just maybe, ffmpeg or something else becomes a better option all around. I'm not saying you're personally responsible for the decline of MPlayer, but you sure had a major impact. With a record like that, I don't see how you can believe any project you have any control over could exist with multiple developers, supposedly working together... But I digress. I'm very tired of this same nonsense from you, and since those responsible here have decided to tolerate it at the expense of all else, I've decided to unsubscribe from all MPlayer mailing lists, and will cease to follow development. A seven and a half year run, coming to an end... Can't help but wonder how many hours I've spent over the years, between testing MPlayer, reporting bugs, reading the lists, and answering questions. Best regards to those who have made the project state of the art, and an exciting place to be, over the years. I hope it continues to advance. To those who remain, good luck, and goodbye.
