[MPlayer-users] When I play some avi files with a locally compiled mplayer, it uses mpg123 to decode the audio, and it decodes it incorrectly.

The package mpg123 was upgraded from 1.26.5 to 1.29.3, and they are 
not api compatible.  I built the earlier package, and tried to run it
with mplayer compiled for 1.29.3 and mplayer crashed with a mpg123
library call not found.

Building mpg123 1.29.3 locally didn't work, and the mpg123 package is
required by some other packages that are pretty fundamental, so it
doesn't seem worthwhile to pursue downgrading it to 1.26.5 because it
might be going down the rabbit hole.
