I think mplayer-plugin changed to gecko-mediaplayer (or something
like that) in the repos. Not sure why you'd want to remove
mplayer from the name. For me, mplayer works far better on far
more kinds of media than any other player out there (even
incredibly weird old junk if you find lots of codecs on the
web to populate /usr/lib/codecs with - and run 32 bit mplayer
so it can use them). It may have the world's worst human
interface (with 47,629 command line options), but it seems to have
that interface because the developers care more about making it
play all the media in the universe than about making it seem
slick. I wish more linux developers had the same mindset :-).
