Mplayer broke all other apps integration.

Fedora Core 3
AMD Duron 750
ATI Radeon 9000
RAM 580,788k
APPS: xawtv, jtvd, xtvd, Gv4l and any other possible capture/recording 
app that requires Mplayer.

When trying to capture or record or mux I receive various errors.
MEncoder 1.0pre6-3.4.2 (C) 2000-2004 MPlayer Team
CPU: Advanced Micro Devices Duron Spitfire (Family: 6, Stepping: 1)
Detected cache-line size is 64 bytes

To get best performance, recompile MPlayer with 
File not found: 'frameno.avi'
Failed to open frameno.avi
Option tv: Unknown suboption adevice

Exiting... (error parsing cmdline)
Compiling from source fails as well. I read on some postings that 
Mplayer changed all the options settings with this new release which 
"Broke" all apps dependencies with this change. The frameno.avi being 
one as supposedly Mplayer no longer recognizes tv:// or something along 
those lines. If this is correct, this act has probably pissed off a LOT 
of developers and end users and would in my opinion initate these people 
dropping all dependency on Mplayer which would lead to it's demise.

./configure errors: (with the --disable-runtime-cpudetection)
Disabled optional drivers:

BTTV is the module I'm using and it's correct in dmesg. Not sure why 
dvdread is disabled as well since I can play dvd movies fine in xine but 
not Mplayer. In fact, xine is the only thing working and has with 
Mandrake 10/10.1, FC3 & FC3.

make errors:

Install errors:
EVERYTHING I try to play errors with the following;
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device. Can't 
play a single file while xine has no issues. Makes my system pretty 
useless for multimedia considering EVERYONE has referenced mplayer for 
some odd reason.

Is there a workaround?
I would have attached the config.log but there is none so ...
