You should not have any codecs.conf at all installed, it will only
create problems. The right codecs.conf is built into the MPlayer binary,
the external ones are only for developers and advanced users.

Do as it says. Though I think you should not be using the pp and unsharp
filters at all with these files, even more so since I think pp filter
will not work properly with rgb video like these.
