unable to play certain mp3 using mplayer

Hi, I reformatted my computer sometimes ago, and backup all my mp3 musics. I'm able to play some of them and others of them received the following msg:

Playing Twista- Overnight Celebrity.mp3.
Win32 LoadLibrary failed to load: avisynth.dll, /usr/local/lib/codecs/avisynth.dll, /usr/lib/win32/avisynth.dll, /usr/local/lib/win32/avisynth.dll
Seek failed
libavformat file format detected.
Seek failed
LAVF_header: av_open_input_stream() failed

Exiting... (End of file)
I try google avisynth.dll, seems like not everyone experienced similiar problem has nothing to do with mp3, some are rm, or ram... I don't know if there's something I've missed when installing mplayer.

I used the essential-20050412.tar.bz2
when locate avisynth.dll from my /usr/local/lib/win32, all i found was:
there's no avisynth.dll, in fact...i don't believe I need avisynth, google said avisynth was for video only anyway...

How did you install Mplayer? Did you put the codecs into a folder before you compiled Mplayer?
