Thread: Mplayer URL History?

    Mplayer URL History?

    Ok, I have Mplayer on Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 and I used Mplayer to view a .wmv file at a certain URL.

    So today when I went to enter a new URL to a movie in Mplayer ... I noticed all of my previous URLS are still listed there . Very annoying and would like to clear this, but HOW?


    Thank you

    Thank You

    Not only do you have a cool Brak icon (oh the good old days before cartoon network was popular) but you also solved the problem!

    Why isnt that feature built into MPLAYER? I think little things like this is whats going to keep Linux from being main stream... too many little issues that average users will have trouble overcomming.

    THANKS!

    I know what rm -rf does ... but what does ~/.mplayer do exactly? / is root, but what is that command saying exaclty? Thanks again

    ~ refers to your /home/user directory.

    So if your user is "zerg445", then you have a /home/zerg445 right ? the mplayer configuration files are in /home/zerg445/.mplayer/ directory. So an easy way to delete that directory is rm -rf ~/.mplayer/ meaning, /home/zerg445/.mplayer . Hope that clears it for you.

    Within the ~/.mplayer directory are files including "gui.url" and "gui.history".
    Instead of wiping out your entire configuration directory it may be better to just empty or delete one or both of these files.
    (rm -f ~/.mplayer/gui.url)

    As I have never used the GUI for mplayer these files are empty on my system so I can't tell you exactly what they contain.
