Re: mplayer problem.

I had the same problem.  It turns out that there is a copy of faad2 that
breaks mplayer.  I've heard that it came from a freshrpms repository,
but I'm sure that mine didn't.  How I got this problem on my pc remains
a mystery. 

Anyway... the solution is to download an older copy of faad2, such as
this one...


and install it over the current with the following command

rpm -i --force faad2...rpm

I am saying this all from memory, so I might not have the details
exactly right, but that is the jist of it. 

There are a couple threads on www.fedoraforum.org that discuss it.
