Hi there!

When you pause mplayer2 playing any kind of video, does its process also
use 100% of one of your cores? I think this is weird. I'm switching back
to mplayer.

Nope.

Thanks. Another thing that happens to me only. I filed a bug about this:

I just found out it only happens when I start the video from within
Dolphin, and as my user. From the command line, or as another user with
an unconfigured KDE desktop, it does not happen. Something is very weird
here. Maybe I should start over with a clean KDE environment, AGAIN. But
I really really hate to do this every once in a while. Can't these things
just work?

Can't you just use SMPlayer? (media-video/smplayer). It's a very nice
mplayer front-end.

Sure, although I prefer mplayer, configured to show up on all desktops,
always in the front, without window decorations. So it's not a problem
for me, but I assumed it might be for others, so I filed the bug. But now
it seems it's an indication of deeper problems I have.

Another thing I just found out is that I cannot drag favicons from
Konqueror to the desktop any more, but it works as another user.

The bug report got some updates, it's not Dolphin's or KDE's fault, but
mplayer2's, happens whenever it is started from a file manager. Something
with terminal keyboard controls enabled by the file manager, but with
stdin not being connected to anything readable.

It's fixed upstream: http://devel.mplayer2.org/ticket/146
Meanwhile, option -noconsolecontrols also helps.
