which Linux distribution you are using? for Fedora/Centos you can download the RPM from and simply install using

Code: Select all

$rpm -ivh mplayer-version.rpm

it is easier to install with package of your distro, but with the file you post u need to extract it and run the following in the extracted directory

Code: Select all

./configure && make && make install

hope it helps

If you using fedora then just go for yum

Code: Select all

yum install -y mplayer mplayer-gui mplayer-codecs

If using redhat then better install it from source code.
just switch into its source directory and

Code: Select all

./configure && make && make install

if using Ubuntu then just go for apt_get
