But those are both only MPEG-1 players, they don't even play MPEG-2,
which is still somewhat related to MPEG-1.

Now MPEG-4 is a different beast altogether. It's the likes of the
famous Divx-Codec, and Microsoft also has some mpeg-4 codecs.

There is the avifile library, and the (very crude) player "apla";
together they will play AVIs with various codecs, up to and including
divx4. They are also both under pkgsrc/graphics
