Thank you for you reply. Please find the version below:
MPlayer 1.1-4.8 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team

You are right. Using the test PPA resolved it. However, now I lost
mencoder. So it seems compiling from source is the best option.
Unfortunately it may not be the average users' cup of tea. The Tahr
definitely needs to hop to a later revision.

Thank you so much!
