i downloaded the latest mplayer source and the all-in-one code sources. but i don't know where to put these codec sources then compile.
some people say just put them in usr/local/lib some say in usr/local/lib/codec
you don't need to compile the codecs. you just need to untar the pacage and place the individual bianarys in the right directory. I can maybe save you a little trouble, I made the mistake of placing the who folder(extralite) in the codec directory. You need to place the bianarys inside the folder seperately in the codec directory. after you do that you can run ./configure,
