That was 0.90. That's the message it prints out. Are other people seeing 
it print out a message that just says 0.90? Just to be sure, I rebuilt 
from the tarball from scratch. Even if I go into the MPlayer-0.90 build 
directory and do ./mplayer, I still see that version message with the rc5.

I downloaded them yesterday. Specifically, I got
qt6dlls.tar.bz2 and
untarred them, and then copied the contents of both into /usr/lib/win32 
(along with the files from win32codecs.tar.bz2, also re-downloaded

Actually, I had no /etc/mplayer. So I created it and copied 
(path)/MPlayer-0.90/etc/codecs.conf to it. No codecs.conf in ~/.mplayer. 
Same result.
