mplayer:where can i setup the codecs'path?


hi,

i've installed the realmedia9 codecs, it works fine with xine as i had setup their paths.

i would like them to work with mplyayer too, but don't find any file to fix the path.

can someone tell me which file has to be modified?

thanks
dominik

videocodec rv40
info "Linux RealPlayer 9 RV40 decoder"
status working
fourcc RV40,rv40
driver realvid
dll "drv4.so.6.0"
out I420

videocodec rv40win
info "Win32 RealPlayer 9 RV40 decoder"
status working
fourcc RV40,rv40
driver realvid
dll "drv43260.dll"
out I420

videocodec rv30
info "Linux RealPlayer 8 RV30 decoder"
status working
fourcc RV30,rv30
driver realvid
dll "drv3.so.6.0"
out I420

videocodec rv30win
