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
