I have been a Smplayer user for literally years and years. On a whim I decided to try Qmplay2, and I have to say that I am impressed. If I am still happy with it in a few days, Smplayer will fall to a better app. Thanks :)

It's not about that; I think they are currently having some trouble with the Ubuntu virtual machines that the packages are built with. I was able to add it to another OBS repo I run for Debian 8 (Jessie) with some updated multimedia applications, such as Kodi 16.1, mpv 0.17.0 and VLC 2.2.3. Since it already had ffmpeg 3.0.2, it was ready for me to just throw the source in there and let it build.

If your Ubuntu/Mint repo will be ready I'll add it to README, so you can send me the installation instruction :)

I haven't yet checked to see if they fixed the Ubuntu problems, but the 16.04 version can be installed by following the link I gave above

https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Astevenpusser%3Aqmplay2&package=qmplay2

Click on the Ubuntu icon and follow the instructions to add the repo and its key, or to directly download the deb package (not recommended for older versions of Ubuntu if I get them up, since that deb will probably depend on other packages I may have to add to the repo to get the "real" ffmpeg built in there.)

Also, if I wanted QMPlay2 to build and use an internal ffmpeg, I'd have to figure out and add all the extra build-depends manually to the debian/control file for QMPlay2. Plus a "system" ffmpeg lets me use it for other packages, like the 3.0.2 ffmpeg for Kodi in my Jessie repo (add that link to your README, too) allowed me to also use that prebuilt ffmpeg for QMPlay2.

Not to mention that using shared system packages whenever possible (sometimes to the point of ridiculousness) is Debian and thus Ubuntu packaging policy.

Hmmm--older versions of Ubuntu are still giving trouble.

I believe that those older versions, back to and including 14.04, should be able to add and use the Debian Jessie repo I made, though of course this should need some testing by an Ubuntu user (which I'm not).

I can test it on Ubuntu (VirtualBox) later.

So currently it is not possible to build for 14.04 using OBS?

Btw. the next QMPlay2 release will be able to use libgme on Ubuntu without modifying the config file.

I could build it for 14.04 by first building the "real" ffmpeg in the OBS repo. I've already done that for Debian Jessie, and 14.04 is the closest to that Debian release.

Jessie repo instructions: https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Astevepassert&package=mpv

and the contents of that mini-multimedia backports repo: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevepassert/Debian_8.0/

QMPlay2 version on your repo is old, do you want to update (Maybe you can just write me how to simply create a package using OBS)? I want to remove an account here (qt-apps/linux-apps), because the new page is horrible... Please write an email on write an issue on GitHub.

Can someone please build a deb for this app, as it can no longer be gotten through the samrog131 ppa, because he/she has abandoned it and moved to Arch, so all the instructions everywhere saying to add the repository are now no longer working.

Report

I'm also using Arch (I don't know how to build DEB package, I don't want to learn and maintain the repo). I can at least build QMPlay2 and pack it to .tar.xz and describe which dependencies are needed.

You can read Ubuntu compilation instruction (Readme) on GitHub: https://github.com/zaps166/QMPlay2 - it is very simple since Ubuntu 15.04 (because it has FFmpeg instead of old LibAV).

Btw. why can't it be in Ubuntu/Debian official repo?

Unfortunately, being extremely new to Linux, that would be 'too complicated for me' -- as @mlauzon -- has said.

Someone needs to build a DEB for this app, or it's going to lose a lot of users unless we go to another version of Linux that supports it through the repository.

Hmm, OK. I'll try to build DEB using Qt4. Which Ubuntu version (or is it Debian or Mint)?

Ubuntu packages are ready, please read the description (on qt-apps), download and use :) I hope it'll work...

Hey, I can build and host 32 and 64-bit deb packages for Debian 8 and Ubuntu 15.10 and 16.04 quite easily on the openSUSE build service (OBS). It's free and rather simple to use, once you figure ways around a few quirks it has. Among quite a few packages I have on there, I maintain repos for the Pale Moon browser. This is an example of the web interface I use:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:stevenpusser/palemoon

and the "download package" link in the upper right is what you'd give to users.

Debian 7 and Ubuntus 12.04, 14.04, & 15.04 would require me building the "real" ffmpeg in those repos first--it's a little more hassle, but I also know how to do that. :)

Ok, so try to build the packages (see readme on github and current DEB packages and Arch PKGBUILD for more details) :)

For old Ubuntu you can just include FFmpeg libraries into one DEB package (like I did) and use LD_LIBRARY_PATH in script or use 'rpath' in ELF. This will not bring new dependencies.

Hmmm--something's currently wrong with 15.10 on OBS, as it says it can't find many -dev packages that I know are there. For now, I just have 16.04 Qt4 builds: https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Astevenpusser%3Aqmplay2&package=qmplay2

Hmm, I don't know how the OBS works :D

If you have something - write an email - it is more convenient than comments :)

You can use libgme for Game-Music-Emu plugin, but you must modify the *.pro file (ubuntu libgme doesn't use PKGCONFIG).
In src/modules/Chiptune/Chiptune.pro replace the message about missing libgme by:

LIBS += -lgme
DEFINES += USE_GME

and add the library to dependencies.

I've tried adding this through the PPA, but get an error stating that it's not for Trusty, yet a bunch of articles mention getting it through the PPA.

I am not advanced enough to build from source, so how can I get this player?

I've updated the Readme. Now it describes how to compile QMPlay2 from sources on Ubuntu 14.04.

It's still too complicated for me, so it looks like I'll be skipping this piece of software until Linux Mint 18 (Ubuntu 16.04)....
