updated it how? did you --disable-mencoder and also disable all of the
encoders in ffmpeg compile? that usually shrinks mplayer binary size
considerably. also check what libs are linked in and strip debug
symbols.

ugh 71 fourccs , for mpeg2.

afaik there is no binary codec that supports 92 fourccs. most codecs
are made to support their companies specific products only, usually
only supporting a dozen fourccs max. 

except for ffdshow ... but i hope no one is using ffdshow with mplayer.
if they are using ffdshow with mplayer, they should let me know.

is there a way to change the code without reducing the max fourcc
number, so that it does not require that much size in the binary?

unfortunately, i think we will find more mpeg2 fourcc in the wild in
the future, so i am not for reducing this max fourcc number.

please see my binary codec fourcc list here, it will show you the sad
state of codecs, fourccs, fourcc registration, etc.

those are mostly from vfw codecs only. i have not even touched the
surface of qtx or dshow codecs.
