Thanks for trying.  First, I'm just a user.  I wouldn't no where to look
for mplayer output.  Second, when I removed the mplayer installation
that I did using yum, I installed everything from source that I
downloaded from the Mplayer site, including the codecs.  I had the same
problem, no matter which way I installed.  Third, I did try puting the
codes in /usr/local/lib/win32/  but that didn't work either.

So, essentially, I'm still butting my head against a brick wall. 
However, thanks for the suggestion - you never know, it might have been
the one that worked!  It just wasn't this time.  :-)

Take care,

Colleen
