FWIW I have just updated my SVN checkout to the latest revision, started
configure (which updated the ffmpeg git repo) and compiled MPlayer
successfully on an up-to-date Ubuntu 18.04 system. I then tested one
random video which played fine.

I have used the distribution compiler, gcc 7.3.0.

As is traditional with MPLayer, the compiler emits tons of warnings... :-(

There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make
it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies and the other way
is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
