=== Tutorial of the Week ===

The tutorial of the week for May 11, 2009, is How``To: Install the very latest MPlayer under Jaunty Jackalope from andrew.46 (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=208550). You can find it here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1081070

This is a nifty tutorial that will show you how to successfully compile the subversion MPlayer under Jaunty Jackalope. For memory, ubuntu-freak's (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=314581) "Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto" was the Tutorial of the Week for October 06, 2008 and should be used if you do not wish to compile applications. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683

This week tutorial is very well presented, and, most of all, supported. You can even browse a recent tutorial from the same author, "Top 10 Tricks and Tips for the svn MPlayer" that focuses on MPlayer usage. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1154431

Long hours of fun ahead!
