Works for me on 7.4/amd64 with all the usual video (MPEG2, XviD,
H.264) and audio stuff (MP3, AAC, Vorbis, AC3 and DTS decoding as
well as S/PDIF pass-through).

I have found one bug: runtime encoding to AC3 (-af lavcac3enc) is

$ mplayer -v -channels 6 -af lavcac3enc=1 Sintel.2010.720p.SURROUND.x264-VODO.mp4
