Mplayer Installation Failed

These guys change their installer too often for us to maintain a custom version for the Xtra installer. The problem is caused because mplayer likes to use /tmp to compile but /tmp is usually mounted noexec.
Simplest solution is to remount /tmp with exec, run the ffmpeg installer then remount /tmp with noexec. The below commands should work on most servers.
mount -o remount,exec /tmp
Then run the ffmpeg installer and after you are done with that run:
mount -o remount,noexec /tmp
or just run /scripts/securetmp
