 Second is to use MPlayer with the <b>experimental</b> multithreaded
 <a href="http://gitorious.org/projects/ffmpeg/repos/ffmpeg-mt">FFmpeg-mt</a>
 branch, which allows you to use multiple cores/CPU. <b>(all OS and CPU supported)</b>
+To Install, copy and paste this line:
+<i>git clone git://repo.or.cz/mplayer && cd mplayer && git checkout origin/mt
+&& git submodule init && git submodule update && ./configure && make
+&& make install</i>
+To enable threading run <i>mplayer -lavdopts threads=</i><b>N</b> file.avi
+where N is the number of threads you want to use.
 A Windows build of MPlayer using FFmpeg-mt can be found at

 Third is to use the multithreaded <a href="http://www.coreavc.com/">CoreAVC</a>
 codec with the <a href="http://code.google.com/p/coreavc-for-linux/">CoreAVC-for-linux</a>
