It was broken for me as well.
solution was the following
boot into windows
install their free decoder package (beta) has no time limit mentioned
open sample clip in GSpot application to read info about the required dll
reboot to linux
mount windows partition and copy the vsshdsd.dll into the win32 codec dir
delete old vssh codecs which were using vfw not dshow
plus there was three of them required instead of one
edit in mplayer build dir etc/codecs.conf
test samples (all types seemed to playback)
