codecs in /usr/lib/codecs instead of /usr/lib/win32 or vice-versa

Hi all,
       Please look at . Now
most of the programs look at /usr/lib/win32 for codecs while the
codecs are by default installed on /usr/lib/win32 (for e.g. look at
w32codecs_20061022-0medibuntu1+build1_i386) when its installed its
installed to /usr/lib/codecs as far as I can see, I used archive
manager to look into the .deb file & it shows me this
/./usr/lib/codecs/ . Could somebody guide what is the preferred way.
For now I just dumped all of the codecs to /usr/lib/win32 & mplayer
seems to be able to play most of the content fine from /usr/lib/win32.
         Looking forward for some suggestions on the same.
