Grabbing the latest source I was able to have success. I must have gotten an old copy by mistake. Thanks! For the help of
other Mac folks...
tar -xpf mplayer-export-snapshot.tar
cd mplayer-checkout-2008-05-04/ (or the date from yours)
mv mplayer ~/bin
mplayer -ao macos -afm hwac3 -channels 6 Video.avi
I can't explain why, but I did not have success with the Mac GUI build from the site. I tried both the "latest" and the 080327 downloads. Other folks have indicated success with those, I cannot explain why I did not, but when I did my own compile it did.
Stay in touch when you're away with Windows Live Messenger.
