Mplayer2 was very promising last year when they forked from the original 
mplayer project. One of the main goal of this project was to provide more 
frequent release and updates. Unfortunatly, they failled to provide something 
else after the initial release. This initial release no longer build with 
current tools/libs and contain several major bugs. A workaround was to update 
our pkg to a recent git snapshot. Since then, I do not see any reason to 
continue to update this package which is currently broken.

If there is no objection, I will drop the package from [community]. Users 
should consider to follow mplayer2-git from AUR or the original mplayer from
