If you are using Debian then the best bet would to use pat-get for the installation of mplayer. You might also want to use apt to install the mplayer skins and codecs.

He means apt-get. And he is right. If you are using Debian, use
apt-get install mplayer
if you are using a Red Hat distro, use
yum install mplayer
and if you are using Suse, use YaST however that thing works. You should only compile from source if you absolutely have to, or if you are in Gentoo, of course.

I disagree with that statement. I prefer to compile all of my apps from source and then create my own packages from the build. It gives me a little more control over my system. FYI: you need to install the latest version of GTK if you want to compile MPlayer from source. This is a good thing to have if you plan on compiling any other apps in the future, a lot of things use these dependencies. Although you can still use the methods described in the previous posts if you prefer.
