I'm trying to get Mplayer or any media player to work with .mp4 videos with AAC/FAAD audio encoding. At least, I think that's what I'm trying to do -- I'm not really sure what encodings are being used. Every time I try a file, I get the following error:
Trying to force audio codec driver family libmad...
Requested audio codec family [faad] (afm=faad) not available.
Enable it at compilation.
Cannot find codec for audio format 0x6134706D.
I've tried uninstalling Mplayer, downloading the "all codecs" file, unzipping it into /usr/local/lib/codecs and /usr/local/lib/win32 and then reinstalling Mplayer via Rpmdrake, but it doesn't work -- I get the same error message.
I get the feeling I'm installing the codecs into the wrong place (what is the right place?) or that I'm installing Mplayer wrong somehow, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
