[MPlayer-users] Quicktime Sound Woes

I have been trying for a very long time now to get new-ish Quicktime movies (like the ones from www.apple.com/trailers) to play with mplayer.  I'm running Ark Linux, which uses an ALSA 1.0pre (not sure which one exactly, but I don't think that's too relevant)

Anyway, I placed all the binary codecs from mplayerhq.hu into /usr/local/lib/codecs, and attempted to play a Quicktime movie.  Here's the output I got -- hopefully you guys will be able to understand it better than me.

Basically (as is my understanding) mplayer is looking for the codecs, finding them, but then panicking when it tries to use them.  Other audio-ish things work with my compilation (eg: playing mp3s and such).

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
