Fix Mplayer non working-controls “No bind found for key ‘JOY_RIGHT’.-JOY_DOWN”

Sunday, 3rd January 2010

Since some time I’m facing issues with non-working controls in mplayer.
It’s pretty annoying. The last time I googled for a solution I couldn’t findanything as a fix. Luckily this time I found the solution
It’s pretty easy and it comes simply to adding a line to /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf
in Debian or any other location where mplayer.conf is located:
Here is the line required to be added: nojoystick=yes In case if it has to be done on user level. The same option has to be included in ~/.mplayer/config Cheers 🙂

    Wow, this tip was really useful; I thought this behavior was a bug 🙂

      Yeah I thought so, as well but it’s not 😛

    Well I had this problem since long ago, on a Debian client running as Virtualbox guest (both on XWindow and in console)… the same did not happen on a real machine so in my case I think it was an issue with the VB video driver or the like. Anyway… trying adding this parameter to the conf files seems to have fixed it! thanks 🙂

    Thank you for this, it baffled me that mplayer stopped accepting any keyboard input after I upgraded my kernel but you tip worked for me.
