I'm using the same versions as Randy (on Gentoo though, not on BLFS 
yet...) without any problems, but i do recall noticing that 
'about:plugins' will tend to list ALL formats as supported, regardless 
of what mplayer was built to support - so are your problems related to 
any particular video formats, & if so, does your mplayer-build support
