 A similar alternative (to the original question) is that it could be
 due to the $HOME variable too- mplayer does have config files in
 your home directory (well, the version I have does, I've not tried
 the .deb version tho).
 Well, more accurately, there's a config file that may be empty,
 and a codecs file that should have *lots* of info in it, and a
 registry file for windows emulation, to use those windows based
 codecs (does the .deb have these?).
