There is no override (that I'm aware of).  If the codecs weren't
present, you have to recompile.  If you want MPlayer compiled for a
specific CPU, recompile.  You can backup and upgrade to R5E50, however
you'll still need codecs.  In addition, if you want to compile for a
specify CPU, recompile.  Directions on recompiling to play them all has
been on the KnoppMyth forum for some time.  Don't like the forum?  Read
the MPlayer docs.  All dependences (less codecs) are already included.
