These instructions worked for me and should cover those missing .conf files. Give it a read http://lfs.oregonstate.edu/blfs/view...a/mplayer.html

You seem to have no fonts, codecs or skins loaded - go to the mplayer website and get them. They should be put in the directories your error message gave.

Yes, get the things it lists, put them all in the same directory (eg, on your desktop). Untar the mplayer source, cd into that folder then (as root) execute all the commands. Copy and paste them from a browser.
