I am in trying to get mplayer .91 working properly. In the README file it told me where to put them. mplayer 1.0n might be in a different spot.

i tried to install codec only, ./configure doesn't work on the codec source.
do i just need to put the source file in some directory?

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,

if this is just for playing mpeg and divx, then you don't need any extra codecs at all. mplayer comes with the FFmpeg libraries built in which will play all these types of files.
