Just did some looking, and I see my (C6) mplayer is current, but ffmpeg
has an available update. So, assuming I can update ffmpeg, and it works
with mplayer (I have to use that - if nothing else, to look at
surveillance videos for our secure rooms).

Let me try updating ffmpeg, and see.

Ok, further looking: ffmpeg-libs is installed, and I see no updates. From
rpm -qi, it says 27 Oct 2014, vendor rpm fusion.

Which newer version? Btw, yum info says that ffmpeg is a *broadcasting
solution, for encoding. Am I misunderstanding something?
