Yip, I had the codecs in /usr/lib/win32/ 
The binary version of Mplayer (installed from rpm) did not work. (it
uses the same codecs. Codecs were also from rpm)

I downloaded the latest source code, compiled, etc.  Worked fine. (with
the codecs from the rpm installation.)

Afterwards I updated the codecs and MPlayer still worked.

Maybe there was something wrong with the MPlayer from the rpm, although
it used to work fine a few months ago.

Dunno what went wrong.
