linux sound issues

i have an issue with playing sound from a stack on linux. the
documentation states that revolution uses xanim to play audio files, but
as has been documented in many places, this is no longer in development
and is tricky to install.
so im trying to use mplayer instead. the methods i've tried to get this
creating a shell script called xanim, which is in the path, which passes
any arguements onto mplayer. running this from the command line works
fine, but its not being picked up by revolution.
i've also tried stating the audio/video player using the videoClipPlayer
property, but this doesnt seem to work either.
has anybody had any luck with this? i can call mplayer (or the xanim
script) using the shell function and it works fine, but i'd rather it
used the internal play function.
any help would be appreciated,
