Can't install mozilla-mplayer plugin

hello, I'm trying to install the mplayer plugin for mozilla by issuing
 apt-get -t unstable install mozilla-mplayer
but I got these errors:
Reading Package Lists...
Building Dependency Tree...
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  mozilla-mplayer: Depends: mplayer (>= 0.92) but 0.90rc4-1.libranet.1 is to be installed or
                            mplayer-custom (>= 0.92) but it is not installable or
                            mplayer-386 (>= 0.92) but it is not installable or
                            mplayer-586 (>= 0.92) but it is not installable or
                            mplayer-686 (>= 0.92) but it is not installable or
                            mplayer-k6 (>= 0.92) but it is not installable or
                            mplayer-k7 (>= 0.92) but it is not installable or
                            mplayer-powerpc (>= 0.92) but it is not installable or
                            mplayer-g4 (>= 0.92) but it is not installable or
                            mplayer-nogui (>= 0.92) but it is not installable
Please enlighten me on what these errors mean. At first I thought that my mplayer was simply outdated so I tried
 apt-get -t unstable install mplayer
but it said that I already have the latest version.
