Success!

Well, it's a minor success.

MPlayer for ubuntu comes, by default, configured half-stupid. All of the codecs that might just infringe somebody a teensy bit are excised out of the code.

That's not to say they don't exist. Finding and loading the better WM* codecs just fixed my windows media playback problems.

We'll see if rebuilding Ubuntu's FFmpeg solves the h.264 problem.

FWIW, and from going 'round this a couple of months ago- build them all from source if you can*. Re Mplayer- IIRC they discuss the codecs on their web page, and point to a download source.

*I usually use FreeBSD and their pre-built packages, but even that isn't foolproof for multimedia.

Sounds like a fun project, though.
