[MPlayer-users] MPlayer codec RPMs have unnecessary dependencies

  I just realized that you were probably talking about the Greysector 
MPlayer RPMs, not the codec RPMs.  Well, first of all, they're usually 
horribly out of date, since people are expected to compile their own 
from source.  Second, it's not a yum repository.  Third, since the RPMs 
can be used by other applications, there shouldn't be a dependency on 
MPlayer at all, since it would be reasonable to want to install xine or 
some other application without MPlayer and use these codec RPMs with it, 
for example.
