You probably need to install the codecs, which you can get here http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html Also, what distro are you using, how did you install mplayer?

If you are using Ubuntu you will need to download more codecs like ffmgep,lame,sox, and other audio and video codecs.. As said we first need to know what distro you are running.

I think there is a codec called divx4linux. Might try a search for it and see if that helps.

What repositories are you using? For SuSE you will probably want to add the "packman" repository to your list. Search here at LQ for existing threads, esp the SuSE subforum. Good luck with it
