Go to the home site for mplayer.

Download the all* package for Linux of Windows and other codecs.

As root, create a directory in /usr/lib called /usr/lib/win32

Unpack the codecs into it. [I copied the all*codecs.tar.bz there,
unpacked it, creating an all*codecs directory, changed into that
directory and copied everything to the level above].

Now run either/both of

apt-get install kaffeine  [Optionally apt-get install libdvdread and
run the installer script found in /usr/share/docs/examples/ if you
want to install the libdvdcss libraries to play encrypted DVD's]

apt-get install helix-player mozilla-helix-player

Tell mozilla to associate .ram files with either /usr/bin/kaffeine
or /usr/bin/helixplayer
