mplayer problems


I ahve installed mplayer successfully however when I attempt to start gmplayer from the command line below is the output. It seems to be complaing about configs files. Any ideas on where to get or how to create those config files?
Also, it just hangs and I have to ctrl c to get out. Thanks

make directories /root/.mplayer/Skin/ or /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/ and then put a skin that you can download from MPlayer's site there, and rename that skin's directory to "Default" or "default"(I forgot whether it's upper or lower case), and then it'll work.
