Thanks for the post.  Yes, it looks like the development has moved over to 
the main mplayer website.  I will download the .dmg image file from the 
www.mplayerhq.hu website.  I am not whether this .dmg image file only 
contains source code or whether it also contains a binary.  If it has a 
binary, will it run under Tiger?

It also looke like the Mac version may not support as many codecs.  Does 
anyone know whether mplayer for the Mac will play Windows Media Player 9
