These packages aren't supported (for various reasons, one being that
it uses shared libs version of ffmpeg, which has caused numerous
problems in the past). Please build your own version of MPlayer from
sources, or upload a short sample of your file so we can try to
reproduce the problem.

As far as I'm concerned, I have an AMD64 machine, and I build my
packages from source, and everything is fine.
