DOS GUI for MPlayer (Miscellaneous)

I don't use SMPlayer -- i've never been able to get it to work
reliably under my extended Win98SE (DX9, KernelEx, 98SE2ME, etc).

The lightest MPlayer Windows GUI i'm aware of is William Wang's
open-source MPlayer WW (a/k/a MPlayer Lite):

It has the unique property of having the actual MPlayer code
integrated into the GUI executable -- the other MPlayer shells
that i'm aware of just run the separate MPlayer EXE file.

Anyway, based on your query, i tried MPlayer WW in real DOS with
HX and got the following errors:

dpmild32: import not found: ImageList_Destroy
dpmild32: import not found: ImageList_LoadImageA
dpmild32: file COMCTL32.DLL
dpmild32: d:\hx\COMCTL32.DLL: cannot resolve imports

I don't know enough about the innards of HX to know if that's
fixable. I do know (?) that HXGUI has a tough time with apps
that use multiple windows. MPlayer WW doesn't have a visible
menu, just a right-click context menu, so i thought i'd give it a
try for the heck of it.

Anyway, JFYI....
