What am I missing?
Did you look in /usr/share/doc/packages/Mplayer?  I have 19.5MB of
documentation there, including html in 10 languages.

I did <find -name "mplayer*"> from "/" as root, and turned up nothing
recognizable. Now I have gone into the directory you mention, and find (three
levels further down) the multilingual HTML files. I don't have an excuse, but I
probably would not have overlooked them if they didn't have names like "cs",
"de","en", etc. I know I am being petty, but it might have been easier to
locate the docs. Yes, it's the Unix way. It would have been cheating to put
them under a directory with a name like "MPlayerDocs".

Well, as it happens, the directory /usr/share/doc/packages/{package_name} is the standard place for the documentation :-)
