if the file was in *.tar.gz format: this should do the trick

Code:
[user@domain ~]$ls -a
./ ../ MPlayer-0.93.tar.gz
[user@domain ~]$tar -xzvf MPlayer-0.93.tar.gz
[user@domain ~]$ls -a
./ ../ MPlayer-0.93.tar.gz MPlayer/
[user@domain ~]$cd MPlayer
[user@domain MPlayer]$ls -a
Big list of files here...
[user@domain MPlayer]$./configure
Another Long List of information
[user@domain MPlayer]$make
Another long list of info
[user@domain MPlayer]$su
Password:
[root@domain MPlayer]#make install
One more long list of info
[root@domain MPlayer]#exit
[user@domain MPlayer]$
Start/restart your browser, should've worked

The most important thing to do is to teach yourself to read Linux documentation, otherwise you won't go very far
