-STEP1: Installing FFmpeg libavcodec/libavutil/libavformat
-If you are using an official (pre)release or a CVS snapshot, skip this step,
-since official releases include libavcodec. CVS sources do not include
-libavcodec. To verify if you do have libavcodec or not, check if a subdirectory
-named 'libavcodec' exists in the MPlayer source tree.
-The FFmpeg project provides libavcodec, a very portable codec collection (among
-the supported formats is MPEG-4/DivX) with excellent quality and speed, that is
-the preferred MPEG-4/DivX codec of MPlayer. You have to get libavcodec directly
-from the FFmpeg CVS server.
-To get the FFmpeg sources, use the following commands in a suitable directory
-outside the MPlayer source directory:
-cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/ffmpeg login
-cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/ffmpeg co ffmpeg
-When asked for a password, you can just hit enter. A directory named 'ffmpeg'
-with subdirectories named 'libavcodec' and 'libavutil' inside will be created.
-Copy (symbolic linking does NOT suffice) these subdirectories into the MPlayer
-In order to force automatic updates of libavcodec when you update MPlayer, add
-the following lines to main/CVS/Entries:
-FFmpeg also contains libavformat, a library to decode container formats that
-can optionally be used to extend MPlayer's container format support. If you
-wish to use it, also copy the libavformat subdirectory into the MPlayer
-source tree and add another line to main/CVS/Entries.
