first download the codecs:
http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/rel...061022.tar.bz2

bzip2 -d *.bz2; tar xvf *.tar (replace * with the filename if you have more compressed archives in the directory I'm assuming it's a clean directory)

then move the codecs to the correct directory
(should be /usr/local/lib/codecs)

then download this file:
http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/rel...1.0rc1.tar.bz2

then bzip2 -d *.bz2
then tar xvf *.tar

then follow the install instructions
./configure;make;make install

the download and install the mozilla plugin
(The link is in my previous post)

Hope this helps
