I included the universe and multiverse repositories in my apt
configuration, and installed mplayer-custom. 

Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me. 

[msoulier at latte msoulier]$ mplayer
MPlayer 1.0pre5-3.3.4 (C) 2000-2004 MPlayer Team

CPU: Intel Pentium III Katmai/Pentium III Xeon Tanner 551.8 MHz (Family:
6, Stepping: 3)

Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 SSE SSE2

Reading config file /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf
Illegal instruction

I'm not sure why. I'm on a dual-P-III system.

I'm going to try getting the source package and rebuilding.
