[MPlayer-users] Unsupported Quicktime .mov file?

I just downloaded, compiled and ran the MPlayer pre-release version on
my Redhat 9 system. Everything is working beautifully so far with only one
exception: some .mov files on a class CD-ROM I have are showing up as skewed
video output (what I'm seeing is as though each horizontal line is too long,
resulting in a wrapping of the end pixels on to the next line, propogating a
skewed result all the way down the output window). There are also some
random colors between skewed lines, suggesting there is some data there that
is being interpreted as pixel data when it SHOULD be read in as codec data.
The explanation that makes most sense to me is that MPlayer is
correctly recognizing the .mov file but assigning an incorrect or older
codec/interpreter to play it. How can I tell what versions are supported by
MPlayer? How can I tell what the version of the .mov file is that I'm
trying to play?
