sounds like a cool idea. 

I was also thinking of structuring the manual to include the following

installing on osx
installing on ubuntu
installing on windows
installing codecs pack
configuring audio playback
configuring video playback
configuring and using osd
keyboard controls
playing a file
playing a stream
playing a dvd
additional help

this would make a newbies guide. The intention is to include many screen
shots and very clear step by step instructions, with jargin explained

Any comments on the chapters suggested? Are there any others that would
be good to include (or exclude).

I was thinking of creating these empty chapters and then posting to the
mplayer-users list to rally contributions...

What do you think?
