After removing the 'old' version, I used 'make install'. However, I found a
couple of things to note here:
- Due to permissions the 'make install' failed as it could not create or
copy the files, so I used 'sudo make install'
- Wheezy build default env variable 'path' doesn't have /usr/local/bin/, so
causes issues when using web server and/or cron with scripts to run
mplayer. So I created this simlink (easier than adding the additional path
to path variable in scripts): $ sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/mplayer /usr/bin

However, I'm not sure either of these issues would appear from a clean
install of wheezy....
