Thanks for the info Ingemar. I was not aware the mplayer folks had 64bit
codecs too. To add to this possible solution, the Fluendo people sell
legally licensed codecs for both i386 and x86_64 here:

I have not tried the 64bit versions of either but would not mind
supporting Fluendo by buying their set at 28 euros.

Now if only a 64bit Flash plugin and working ATI drivers for F7 became
available so I can move over to 64bit F7.

Hope this helps others too.
