I think I’ve emailed you about this before, but I’d really like this package 
updated already. This 2.0 release is ancient now, and has a lot of bugs that 
have long since been fixed, as well as it lacks important features and 
improvements (like high bit depth H.264 playback support). Most other desktop 
distributions have more up-to-date packages available. Not to mention that my 
mplayer2-specific fork of SMPlayer (SMPlayer2) has no more version checks and 
is only compatible with the behavior of mplayer2 HEAD.

Please, use Git HEAD instead of the ancient stable release of mplayer2. It 
would also be nice if your package made use of system libraries (it should 
work fine with ffmpeg). For the recent changes to libav/ffmpeg’s API, there is 
currently a separate branch (libav_api_update) which you should use until it 
gets merged (which should happen very soon).
