I would be thrilled if you got this working!

Gregorio, I tried to use your patch with fink, but ran into trouble 
right away.

upon trying to get fink to download mplayer:
curl -f -L -s -S -O 
curl: (22) The requeste### execution of curl failed, exit code 22
Downloading the file "MPlayer-0.90rc1.tar.bz2" failed.

going to http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/ there are only rc4 
and rc5 tarballs there, no rc1 which is what fink seems to want. I 
guess I'll have to wait until fink updates their package, and then beg 
you for an updated patch.
