There are currently two ways to get the source for this driver: by downloading a
'stable' release or by downloading the latest source via Mercurial. Depending on how old the
last release is, it may be best to try out latest in Mercurial.
- Download a Release
If you decide to try one of the 'stable' releases, please note that as of yet none
are really quite stable. They are more akin to Mozilla's milestones in that there are
still many bugs to be worked out. Please use the first download link if possible
as it tracks the number of downloads.
- Source Via Mercurial
Ok, yeah, you know the development repository is often broken and unstable. Well, yeah, but we still need
you guys to check out the latest and greatest from it and report those bugs. So please do.
See the main development repository page
for info about how to access Mercurial, and how to check out the code.
- Video Player Software
MPlayer gives you fast VCD/DVD playback, as well as playback for all supported
MPlayer codecs. Make sure to read the DXR3 text included in the documentation!
To use MPlayer you need to have em8300 0.9.0 or later installed.
The latest versions of Xine allow DVD and DIVX playback via the DXR3. When using
the version from CVS, DVD navigational menus are implemented also. The DXR3 support
is now inluded with Xine, so the patches linked to below are no longer necessary.
OMS is essentially dead. Use Xine or MPlayer instead.
