Thanks very much! With the version of mplayer I built from source 
yesterday I was able to watch the video with sound using

mplayer -demuxer lavf filename.ts

If you are still interested in chasing down the freeze that I had using 
the mplayer I built from source and trying just "mplayer filename.ts", 
could you let me know what level of verbosity you want for the console 
output ie the command line to use?
