Bad luck, mplayer uses closed source win32 codecs that only run on x86 and 
also mplayer doesn't currently care about byteorder, so chances to get 
mplayer on PPC are 1:10000000 ;) You might want to look into the 
mpg12play-portable project, which will only play mpeg1/2 but it doesn't seem 
to be progressing currently.
