Yes, I have many scripts too, but I just have one script that decides
which version of mplayer to use:
Then I just include that script in all my others:
$MPLAYER file.avi etc
That way I only have to change the first script and all my others switch
to a different version of mplayer. You could easily have two versions
of the first script, and assign a button on the remote to switch between
them, then all it takes is a button press to switch mplayer versions.
