Mplayer's Theora support will be unstable, sometimes fail, sometimes
work, as long as bitstream format and API changes.  But as it's usually
only some single lines to change (or to copy from encoder_example), not
a big deal.

You should be glad that the major Linux media players already have
support.  It will help Theora jump-start as soon as you go beta.  It's
also very helpful for experimenting.  May I remember you that the
example player cannot even seek?
