Not that I know of, but since MS has just released a 64-bit version of Windows,
they might appear. Even so, I've lied a bit. MPlayer doesn't support loading
64bit binary codecs, but I'm sure somebody'll try to add support for them when
they appear.

The necessary (and tested) DLLs are included in the essential codecs package.
It's 32-bit only for now.

It wasn't 32-bit, then. To build 32-bit mplayer, you must install 32-bit
counterparts of all necessary libs and point configure to correct paths
(if necessary). If it's a multi-lib system, like Gentoo or Fedora Core 3,
you should be able to do that.
