[MPlayer-users] how to check available codecs?

i have two questions which i failed to find an answer in the manpage:
-> If i come to a running system (e.g. with Suse-Linux) and mplayer
available, how can i check (aside from trying to run example-videos)
which codecs are "builtin" into "this" local mplayer binary.
In other words, when i configure mplayer from source, at the end of
the configure run a summary is given what will be supported and what
will not. Can i a "trigger" the mplayer-binary to tell me this
summary again? (Or look for it elsewhere?)
-> Then if i have learned that my "local" mplayer does not support, e.g.
quicktime (no qt....dll's available) is there a possibility to
"add" dll's in a way that i don't have to re-configure/make/make install
mplayer? (Something plugin-like?)
For example SuSE-82-default starts with an empty /usr/lib/win32 directory.
Can i fill in the dll's and hope that mplayer will know about them
when i start it the next time?
