This directory doesn't exist in incoming, so I can't check your files. Anyway,
have you tried renaming to (upper case to lower case)
because that's what mplayer seems to be looking for.

I reupload the files...
I test renaming to (upper case to lower case) but it
doesn't work!!!

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is because the decoder is not only a decoder but also a demuxer (it tries
to read the itself, MPlayer only supports filters that take a stream an decode it).
Unfortunaltely the code is not under a license that is compatible with MPlayer
so I guess there will be no support for it (See also
