Screw the installer mess.  As long as there are ongoing questions of
mplayer's license being honest (how many times have they sworn it's really
all GPL now?), there will likely not be even an installer package.  Once
questions of license are resolved, there will probably be a package in
main supporting everything it can without win32 codecs.  In the meantime,
Christian Marilliat has packages outside the Debian archive.
