I'm running .20 which I understand defaults to using mplayer as the 
default player for most everything. So, going off of a default setup, 
that means mplayer for me. I guess what I'm getting at is maybe a list 
of the codecs that are installed. Presumably the list would vary from 
going from source versus going the ATRPMS route (the latter being 
dependent on what codecs the package maintainers opted to include?
