MPlayer? Petulant. Whores.
"SMPlayer" is better in almost all aspects, available from apt-get or FreshRPMs. Unless you are actually running a command line to watch anime. Jesus fuck. It is 2008, the GUIs work now, you are not running an encode, you are watching loli animus. In Failbuntu I think it is already in the repo list, Fedora you have to use FreshRPMs, I believe. If you use a different and more fail package management system, just google "SMPlayer."
