One of the FTP masters (I forgot who) once said that the best way to
help get mplayer into the archive would be to present an overview of
the patent situation surrounding MPEG and the like. ffmpeg has such
an overview in README.patents, which might serve as a good basis, as
the core library code of mplayer, ffmpeg and xvidcap is identical.
