Mplayer has excellent docs on their site. Just look a bit more. Which codecs did you get? If you got the windows codecs then you need to place them in /usr/local/lib/codecs. Just create the codecs directory (mkdir codecs), dump all the dll's in that folder and move them to /usr/local/lib (mv codecs /usr/local/lib).

If you compile mplayer from source your suppose to do that before you compile it. Mplayer already comes with many codecs.
