Manta-Ray - 2006-12-03

I have Mplayer OSX Version 1.0pre8 installed. I would like to get mplayer working by terminal (like in linux). Once I can get it working by commmand line, hopefully I can use it in MythFrontend for OSX. In Mplayer OSX Help, they advise to make a symlink via this command :

ln -s /Applications/MPlayer /usr/local/bin/mplayer

When I type this in the terminal I get this error :

ln: /usr/local/bin/mplayer: No such file or directory

Could someone offer help in fixing this problem and getting mplayer to work from the terminal? Thank you.
