[PlanetCCRMA] Mplayer with JACK?

Hi all,

I've got a complete and up-to-date PlanetCCRMA install, on FC3. I have 
audioapps and audiovideoapps installed.

I'm very happy with my set-up at the moment. However (as ever...) I 
still have several things which I would still like to get working.

First, I have an installation of mplayer, which I installed with rpms 
from somewhere-or-other. The only problem is that it doesn't include a 
JACK output plugin. I believe this needs to be compiled in? It does have 
an ALSA output plugin, but I have never really bothered to get this to 
work. Really, I would like JACK output.

So, what is my best option? I assume it is to uninstall the current 
rpm(s) and install by apt from somewhere, but which repository, and 
which packages?

I am also interested in installing a collection of codecs - I have a 
fairly wide range of video formats in my collection.

Can anyone help me?
