Question: How did you setup the 32 bit video codacs? Do you use the 64
bit mplayer or the 32 bit mplayer?

Both, the 64 bit mplayer is installed in the 64bit environment along
with the 32bit in the chroot with w32codecs from the debian-multimedia
repository, also in the chroot.

When I find a video that doesn't play 64bit native I open the 32bit
version.  For the sake of expediency I suppose it would be better to
simply use the 32bit player and web-browsers, but opening and closing
programs once in a great while does not disturb me in the least.

Thanks for any help.

Not a problem.
