No. If you don't have X11 or FB running, MPlayer can send video
directly to your VESA-compliant graphics card. It's full-screen,
good quality, and very fast.

I probably added that to the list too soon. It is a small set of
drivers for various graphics cards. Unfortunately, the drivers
aren't included with this binary. The only reason I mentioned it
above is because it's in MPlayer's list.

Does 8.1 have glibc-2.2.5?

No. But its networking is not as complex as glibc2.
