codecs.conf is available in the MPlayer source tarball under "etc/". 
You need to copy it to your mplayer global conf directory, or just
"$HOME/.mplayer/" for a single user, to have mplayer use it.

Then you can edit it to tell it which files to play with that DLL.  

DLLs don't always just work with mplayer, many need some patching of the
loader or they will segfault.
