That's strange did you search google with marillat in the
search term? 

Also as noted above in this thread, you don't need mplayer to
play dvd's just the special *css which can be found with the
common search terms.

I personally like the way Ubuntu does it, they have a big
readme, and a script which downloads the codecc rather nice
I think. You don't even have to change the source list file.
Then again finding mplayer I really had no problems with adding the proper line to my source list file and using apt-get to get the proper files.

Now getting my system to play .ts files in another thing, I
just home that someone works out a better method of
playback. Or it forces me to upgrade my dual 1.2 mp's to
something that can handle those files.
