Mplayer codecs


Hi I'm trying to install some mplayer codecs to play .ram files. Does anyone know where I place these? Thanks for any advice.

have you tried mplayer's homepage? They have 2 codec packs there. You have to unpack them in /usr/lib/win32 folder.

Not if you use rpm based mplayer install. I installed mplayer with synaptic and then i added the codecs manually and works perfectly.
Otherwise, you first have to install the codecs and then run ./configure script in mplayer for it to detect you have the codecs.

How come in some of the documentation it says to put them in /usr/local/lib/codecs does it check both folders??
