A couple more people have tried this. via IRC i have the following update:

on 32bit machines (most people) (ie non 64bit ubuntu you know who you 
are)  the java package is called: sun-java5-bin
and the location of the libjvm.so in the setup.cfg should be:


After installing mplayer you may get this error: "Error 
opening/initailzing the selected video_out (-vo) device."

You will need to change the video driver which it uses do this by:

right click select preferences,  select the video tab, you will see a list:
 xmga, xv, x11, gl, gl2, dxr3, xvidix, xvmc

change it to xv

If this does not work try a different one !
