hmmm  my mplayer and mplayer-skin s having a nit with some skin it cant find
(it may be that I chose a bunch of skins to include as an option...will clean
completely and retry soon). win32-codecs has security holes, but if you dont
care about this, it should install fine.

if it really is a big problem for you, please consider submitting a PR with
fixes for specific issues you've found. Or report them via PR at least (as
nobody will fix something that is not known to be broken).

good luck,
