Perhaps you did, but we were not able to make clear sense out of what
was posted. Getting angry about it does no one any good.

Various random things.
First, related to what 'sofasurfer' said: are there multiple copies of
MPlayer on your system?
The easiest check is to run 'whereis mplayer' and see if there is more
than one result which is not a directory.
Also, run 'which mplayer' and try to compare the resulting file against
the copy of MPlayer in the build directory.
When you run 'ldd' on the copy of MPlayer in the build directory, does
the output mention libaa? What about when you run it on the result of
Does the copy of MPlayer in the build directory output the same thing as
the installed copy in response to '-vo help'?
Some of those are redundant with one another, but any of them should
help take things at least a little further.
Warning: Simply because I argue an issue does not mean I agree with any
side of it.
Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
