Here are the updated instructions to add 3GPP movie support to
mplayer. 3GPP movies have the extension *.3gp and are produced by
some new mobile smartphones.

1) Download and unpack the latest mplayer CVS. I used MPlayer-20050414

2) Go to http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/Specs/latest/Rel-5/26_series/

3) From here download the file:


4) Unzip 26104-5??.zip and the contained 26104-5??_ANSI_C_source_code.zip
    rename the resulting c_code directory to MPlayer-.../libavcodec/amr_float

5) Execute the usual ./configure, check the messages that should contain something like:
	Checking for amr narrowband ... yes
	Checking for amr narrowband, fixed point ... no
	Checking for amr wideband ... no

6) make, make install as usual

7) Enjoy your stamp-size movies...

8) If you need also the other two codecs of the family the filenames and the target
    directory are:

	26073-5??.zip	MPlayer-.../libavcodec/amr
	26204-5??.zip	MPlayer-.../libavcodec/amrwb_float
