Can't install mplayer codecs from behind a proxy-fedora 12


When I try playing a movie using mplayer, it says

The following plugins are required

MPEG -1 Layer 3 decoder
Divx mpeg-4 version 5 decoder

or

could not determine the type of stream

In the first case, clicking on the search option, error occurs (probably because of the proxy I am working behind)

I can use yum install though behing the proxy. How can install these codecs from the command line ?

I have updated my fedora too.

it's easiest just to go online and find the win32 codecs packages yourself. mplayer's website has good copies for one location.
