+    <para><application>MPlayer</application> developers recommend using current
+    snapshots. The source tarball shown above was created by the BLFS team by
+    downloading an <application>MPlayer</application> snapshot and an
+    <application>ffmpeg</application> snapshot. To form the final tarball, the
+    <application>MPlayer</application> tarball is uncompressed and the
+    directory renamed. Then, the <application>ffmpeg</application> snapshot is
+    uncompressed into this directory, which is in turn compressed into the
+    tar.xz final format. BLFS made no other changes to the existing source
+    files. The <application>ffmpeg</application> snapshot is required, or a git
+    checkout will be requested at configure time. This is not desired, because
+    both should be obtained at the same date.</para>
