Seems the default mplayer package does not include support for DTS decoding capability. It's listed a as support audio codec, but when you try to use it, it mentions that it cannot find it in libavcodec. I did a rebuild of mplayer and now it actual works ( I guess since libdts was already installed on my system). Can the default package include dts support?
This task depends upon

I second this request, i have to use VLC for some of my videos... Which in itself is not so bad if it hadnt been for the lack of a VLC plugin and that its much more difficult to set up VLC than Mplayer in lirc...
