>From the comment in bug 1060:
| it means mplayer statically links the copy of ffmpeg that ships inside the
| mplayer tarball into itself. The package in the devel repository uses the
| shared system ffmpeg.
| Due to using the private copy of ffmpeg, mplayer itself is much *bigger* than in
| the previous release though. Ditto mencoder. To compare the effect, look at
| the sizes of 1.0-0.41.pre8.lvn5 in the FC5 repo and the roughly corresponding
| 1.0-0.42.pre8.lvn6 in the devel repo (the devel one uses external ffmpeg)...
