Thanks for the tip.  After compiling mplayer, I realized there is an
apt-get source for mplayer and other multimedia goodies:

deb http://marillat.free.fr/ unstable main

btw  I was able to watch the Matrix trailer using mplayer last night.  I
was really excited until I watched the 11 o'clock news and saw that
people were watching the full movie in the theaters last night.
