all codecs for Linux x86 (Win32 .dll and Linux .so)

You will need to install all codecs to '/usr/local/lib/codecs/' then recompile MPlayer so it will recognize the new codecs.

Here is an example of how I play the Advanced Streaming Format file for JackFM:

mplayer -cache 32 http://38.116.132.21/Live_JackFM?MSWMExt=.asf

create a link to the codec install dir at that location and it will work for both.
