I could cut and paste it, but instead try these two links:

Quick documentation:

More detail:

They seem complicated, but just follow step by step and everything should work properly. If you build mplayer from source yourself, you will want to have the codecs in first.

codecs: /usr/libs/win32/

easy to find the skins. Just type this in your console

locate mplayer
it will return a whole list of mplayer stuff, but just find out where it is installed and then look for the directory /skins and put your skins in there. It's really easy to do, believe me.
