I have been using gnome-mplayer 1.0.4 with xubuntu 11.10 and it has a number of bugs. I have been reporting these on code.google.com/p/gnome-mplayer/issues/detail?id=558
Anyhow... the dev says there is a newer version 1.05 with a code rewrite which should fix some.
How do I ask for this to be considered for commit into the ubuntu repo's (testing) ?
do I just add it here... https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-mplayer
