      Jokes about slashdotting the matrix trailers are getting reeeealy old, because it doesn't happen. Every time a new animatrix story is posted someone jokes about slashdotting it, but the trailers are always available at speeds of above 500KB/sec even right after the story is posted, when it is still the first story on Slashdot's front page. Believe it or not, there are sites out there with more bandwidth than Slashdot, and AOL-Time-Warner sites are a prime example.

      I have the first two working in Totem (XINE-based) after installing the Quicktime Sorenson codecs.

      There's a patch going around to make MPlayer handle these very strangely encoded videos.

      Works fine for me. The actual animatrix movies have some funky still image at the beginning that confuses mplayer, but xine seems to work better (and I hear there's a patch for mplayer). This trailer doesn't have that, and it works perfectly.
      • by benwaggoner ( 513209 ) <> on Saturday March 22, 2003 @03:08AM (#5572981) Homepage
        Specifically, the movies seem to have been encoded with Discreet's Cleaner, using the "High Quality First Frame" option set to JPEG instead of Basic. This feature dates from the Cinepak CD-ROM era, where the Cinepak codec had low maximum quality for still images. This feature would make the first frame a JPEG, giving better quality for the one frame that tends to get stared at the most, especially with web-based progressive download.

        Of course, since the movie uses Sorenson Video 3.1 Pro, which does just fine with still images, they should have either left the feature off, or just used the Basic mode, which would have made the first frame a really big keyframe, but in the same codec as the rest of the movie.

        Still, this kind of movie is perfectly legal in QuickTime, and part of the open definition of the format. The format is so complex that no one has made much of an effort to implement more than the 5% or so most commonly used features.
    • The first animatrix works fine in the latest release (rc5) of mplayer with the quicktime codecs. It didn't work in rc3 when I tried, so the patch was applied sometime in between there. (but the fix mentioned elsewhere was applied at some point, I checked the sources)

      Presumably they're all encoded similarly...

        Yup... the only trick is that some of the movies have their audio encoded/split funny.

        In the first episode, the small and large versions have the soundtrack split into two pieces, of which mplayer only plays the longest. Hence, audio is delayed 10 seconds... solution? Play the medium sized one which, oddly enough, isn't like this. Another option is to dump the audio from the medium version (using -dumpaudio and -dumpfile) and play it alongside the large version with mplayer's -audiofile option.

        For the second episode (and presumably the remaining ones), the audio is encoded using MPEG4-AAC. Unfortunately, mplayer's support was broken for mp4a (at least in rc4, is this fixed in rc5?). The solution here was to dump the audio stream using mplayer and manually decode it using faad (search google). Then, play the resulting wav file along with the video using -audiofile.
    • There are many forms of gymnastics you can perform... the end result will be that you are nimble and agile, and still can't view these things in mplayer :P
    • by BJH ( 11355 ) on Saturday March 22, 2003 @07:01AM (#5573419)
      I just did this, so here it goes...

      1) Install libsndfile if you don't have it. ( )

      2) Install faac to get sound on the trailer (

      3) You probably want to install xvid as well... nothing to do with the Animatrix, but the more codecs, the better, right? (

      4) Go to and grab:

      Latest Win32 codecpack
      QuickTime6 DLLs
      QuickTime extra DLLs
      RealPlayer9 codecs
      XAnim DLLs
      MJPEG2000 DLLs
      Win32/DMO codecs

      Untar them and move them all into someplace like /usr/local/lib/mplayer/dlls.

      5) Get the latest mplayer source (0.9.0rc5) and run configure with something like this: ./configure --enable-largefiles --with-extraincdir=/usr/local/include --with-extralibdir=/usr/local/lib --with-win32libdir=/usr/local/lib/mplayer/dlls --with-xanimlibdir=/usr/local/lib/mplayer/dlls --with-reallibdir=/usr/local/lib/mplayer/dlls

      and then do the usual make/su/make install thing.

      With any luck, you should be able to play back the trailer.

      And who said Linux isn't easy to use, eh?!
    • just make sure that you've added the Sorenson codecs. If you go to the mplayer webpage, there is a place where you can download a ton of addons. Get the sorenson addons, plug them into the directory, and it should work. Hopefully :-)
    • There was some discussion on the mplayer-users list, and a patch. Apparently the results aren't very good.

      On the other hand, Xine can play the first two episodes without any problems whatsoever.

    • And I think I got the version I'm using from the apt repository maintained by If you're using Red Hat 8, you might be able to get it installed with just:

      rpm -Uvh apt/apt-0.5.5cnc4.1-fr1.i386.rpm
      apt-get update
      apt-get install xine

    I went to DreamCatcher tonight with my wife and my daughter (a Stephen King Fan), and after all the previews they showed a 10 minute (or so) Animatrix Mini called "Final flight of the Osirus" and I have got to say I was Totally Embarrassed.

    I could not believe the fight scene (or should I say SEX SCENE) at the beginning. Whoever they got to do the animation needs to go get some, and soon!

    If the Matrix Movies are going to be more like that short, the sequel is going to blow worse than Caddyshack 2.

      The 'Final Flight of The Osiris' animatrix episode was done by Square USA, it was directed by Andy Jones who has done work on Final Fantasy, Titanic and 1998's Godzilla.

      I'm sure this is common knowledge among those who've seen previous animatrix episodes but there will be a DVD release with the whole collection of shorts.

        You should go see Dreamcatcher to see Dreamcatcher - it's worth it. If you're smart, you'll probably enjoy it. If you're not so smart, you likely won't get how cool it is.

        As for Final Flight of the Osiris - it's good. The opening flirtatious fight scene (what the prude you replied to called a 'sex scene') was cute and fun. If you're going to an R rated movie, it's way-tame compared to the MPAA rating of the movie it's attached to, an hardly a reason to get embarassed. The rest of it is straight out of the Matrix type stuff, and also quite good. The animation quality of the people is as good or better than the Final Fantasy movie. The animation quality of the environment (especially inside the Matrix itself) is substantially better - many parts of which are almost indistinguishable from 'reality'. ("You think that's air you're breathing, punk? Well, do ya?" - Clint Eastwood in the Matrix :)

        If Kazaa didn't suck ass, I'd have a copy of it on my machine by now, to add to the two segments released online. *sigh*

          I DID go see Dreamcatcher to see Dreamcatcher. And it wasn't too bad at all, even though the changes they made to make it fit into a movie somewhat diluted the premise of the book. But heck, isn't that always the case? I did still enjoy it.

          • Well, the Animatrix is done by 7 different groups of people (9 segments), and they're in several different styles, most of which aren't intended to be photorealistic. I generally prefer 'regular' animation to that kind, as it's not 'there' yet, and that's too distracting for me. I keep trying to see the parts that aren't right, and which ones are dead-on, and that just distracts from enjoying the show, for me.

I'm even _more_ bummed that they weren't brave enough to keep the character 'Switch' as a 'switch' (female in the real world, male in the Matrix - or it mighta been the other way around; I can't remember). That would've been much more interesting. Switch and Dozer were cool - I miss them. And Mouse - he was hilarious.

    In the first Matrix movie, Neo is supposed to be the hero. He is supposed to deliver humanity from a scourge of machines that, with AI, decided we were expendable.

    But the first Animatrix makes we humans, pretty much en masse, into horrible villains. It's the same tired old Humanity Is Cruel And Stupid line. Yawn. What's worse is that it tries to make you root for the machines!

    So which is it, Wachowskis? Machines are evil, or all of humanity?

    I don't care for yet more everything-is-grey-there-is-no-morality bullshit, either. Oh well, I guess I'll wait and see.

    • My question is how many are there going to be? When you have a great movie, topping it with sequal after sequal is very hard.
      • According to the documentary features on the disc and Revisited, the Matrix was conceived as a trilogy from the very beginning, and was the movie the Wachowskis always wanted to make...but they had to make Bound before the studios would even trust them with enough money for one film, let alone three at once.

        So, in answer to your question, there'll be three. Plus the comics and tie-in stories that the Wachowskis approved.

      Umm. I hate to throw myself into this feeding frenzy, but the Wachowski brothers never made the point that the machines were evil.

      In fact, from several lines in the original Matrix, it is apparent that the machines were simply defending themselves. Humans released the bombs that clouded the skies, hoping to kill the robots.

      The Agents tell (Morpheous, I think) that the first matrix they created was a paradise, but that humans rejected it. Without pain and suffering, humans couldn't exist. The Machines were trying to keep humans as happy as they could.

      And humans were never expendable. The machines needed the energy produced by humans to exist.

      I think it's more a case of "When does self defense and the right to exist clash with the right of others to do the same?" In otherwords, Neither humans nor AI is truly evil. They are both just trying to preserve their own lives. Calmiche

        >Wachowski brothers never made the point that the machines were evil.

        Exactly. People think I'm crazy when I mention that.

        The core question, the one which tempted Cypher is, "Is reality worth fighting for when a much more benign form of Solipsism exists?"

        Its very easy to see the humans as the traditional villians. They're the ones who want to fight. They're the ones who want to break the symbiotic relationship, which can be seen as a type of war sanction. They destroyed their own environment fighting the machines, suggesting that they are extremists who would rather ruin everything than give in to the enemy.

        The machines are fairly reasonable throughout the movies (except for the dramatic scene about the "smell of humans" but thats Hollywood). They tried to build a perfect world for humans - which to me brings up a great philosophical question about what the religious really think the afterlife is. What is "heaven" to a complex highly-competitive mammal fighting to mate, reproduce, defend territory, and defeat its ideological enemies. The machines have human nature pegged and its hard to argue that they're hurting anyone. Considering its in their interest to keep people alive, I bet they have a great healthcare system too.

        Interesting stuff, I really hope the humans lose or the other movies explore these issues. Perhaps in the end everyone will be a happy transhuman cyborg living on the real Earth.

Didn't someone tell them you lose energy every transformation it makes? It would seem they don't get a net gain unless they have no other way of transforming human food into energy.

      Welcome to life pal, get used to it. Yes this movie is entertainment, but to claim that it should not have grey areas is a disservice to people like me who have been bitching for more intelligent plots in movies for years. Of course we can all live simple lives believing in "black and white" or "right and wrong" theories such as:

      1. File traders are thieves who should go to jail indefinity for supporting terrorism.

      2. Open source software is created and supported by immature and antisocial guys who still have acne and have no girlfriend to speak of while actively supporting and contributing to the "black hat" hacker community.

      3. Computer game developers are people who are trying to make money off of destroying our children's morality by ensuring our children are desensitized to violence and are actively encouraged to kill in real life like they do in all video games, because all video games are extremely violent in nature. Come on, my kid* was running after his neighbor with a hammer because he saw Kirby use a hammer in "Kirby's Dreamland 3." Mind you this has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I should not have given my kid* a hammer in the first place.
      *Kid does not actually exist. (Thank God! :)

      4. Computer gamers are guys who are completely antisocial, also have an acne problem, and of course no girlfriend. They are the direct cause of all violence in our society and should be psychologically treated and take up more healthy pursuits such as football** or other sports which has absolutely no violent content despite terminology coming from warfare such as "Long Bomb" and "Blitz."
      ** I have absolutely nothing against football, but this happened to be the perfect example for what I was trying to say above. I am attempting to point out that "acceptable entertainment" can also be inherently violent.

      Ok I have shown 4 examples of what happens when you take all the grey areas out of a group of people and lump them all into 1 category. Obviously, this is not how the real world works, nor should it be.

      So you are going to ask me, What the hell does this have to do with "The Matrix?" Simple, Neo and his colleagues are born or "grown" into an environment where they are given 3 options: fight, die, or become a battery. Although they may or may not be pissed about the decisions human beings made nearly 200 years earlier, they are still stuck with a war and the fact that they have to fight or die. So yes, Neo is a hero to humans, which is good...for humans. In my humble opinion claiming that humanity in "The Matrix" is evil for destroying robots is just as ludicrous as claiming that the United States is evil since slavery was legal 200 years ago. Both are not good, both are not evil, both are grey.

      Why have things this complicated in a movie? Call me a bigot, but having been told several times that I have an IQ greater than 150 tends to make me bored with plots as thin as "Glitter" or "Crossroads." Even though I enjoy Star Trek for example, I consider it weak fodder compared to a lot of the anime I download/buy when I can. I am not even going to compare the best American television has to offer to the likes of say a Kurosawa film. Again this is just my opinion, it is not uniformly right or uniformly wrong. It works for me and is again universally "grey."

    No so much that they are an interesting way to examine the universe the movies are set in, though that is fun. The thing I like best about the whole thing is that it's a great testbed showing that you can release video for free and still make bundles of money selling people the DVD version!!

    Eventually, all of these shorts will be on DVD, but before then almost all will be on the web (not sure if "last Flight of the Osiris" is supposed to go up or not?). But even though we can all get hi-res versions for free, I'm sure a lot of people will still buy the DVD (I know I will).

    This is just the sort of thing that helps to show how free versions of movies online can actually help, not hinder, sales.

    Excellent advice, I *was* going to go use a 10 free hour of AOL disk to download this, but I think I'll use my cable modem instead.

    Whew! Thanks for saving me some download time!
  • I still really like how some of the images are very pink floyd-esque (think: The Wall)

    and damn!

    that is one fine rendered ass.

    hopefully i don't get a harassment suit for that ;oP

    I definately enjoyed the return on the life-like action...I just wonder how all the various styles of animation are going to blend together in the final product...

    Just got back from watching the Dreamcatcher [] (terrible movie) and Last Flight of the Osiris was attached to it. Pretty neat seeing an episode of The Animatrix on the big screen. Almost made the $8.00 ticket price not a complete waste.
