For those not using the CD set, you may need to install the libraries for Ogg and ogg vorbis (libogg & libvorbis). And you can get many of the plugins to work correctly w/o issue at this point. Too bad getting skins and whatnot working w/ mplayer is such a process or I'd almost say installing mplayer is easy
