about MPlayer Jun 2011

MPlayer was awesome. It played full hd videos much faster than VLC or Media Player Classic. But now something is wrong. I tried the new version and it crashed on both Windows Vista systems immediately.

But still, this software was very good in comparison, I hope they fix this soon.
