Donations are a great way to show your appreciation and support for MPlayer. On this page we list the donations we have received so far and those that would help us in our work on MPlayer. If you have a piece of hardware or a DVD or something whose MPlayer support could be improved, a good way to achieve this is to donate it to a developer.

You can also make a direct monetary donation through flattr or PayPal. Note that the PayPal link below leads to one of our developer's personal PayPal account (this is a temporary solution until we set up a non-profit organization to handle MPlayer's funds). Your donation will be clearly marked as a donation to the MPlayer team, so said developer will be able to sort them out.
