[MPlayer-users] overriding built-in codecs in codecs.conf

Fine, I finally got the source package of mplayer. extracted codecs.conf from it and modified it to reference .sipr.so instead of sipr.so.6.0, and put the file in ~/.mplayer. It now works fine.
Thank you all for all your contributions.

First, you should be able to get sipr.so.6.0 by downloading the MPlayer
codec packs on the website.

Second, it would be a lot easier for you to just create a link from
sipr.so to sipr.so.6.0 instead of messing with codecs.conf.

No.  But you can get the default (full) list by just copying the
codecs.conf file from mplayer/etc/ and then modifying it as you like.
