 Looking at current mplayer build failures, they seem slightly different than
the errors you report in the three patches here.

 With all the fixes we need for mplayer's bundled ffmpeg, why don't we just
switch to ffmpeg itself? mplayer upstream doesn't seem to advise against it,
Debian doesn't use the bundled one, so why not? OK, it will probably be some
effort to unbundle it, but I think it's more future-safe that way.
