AC3 (liba52), OGG, and WMA decoders use float; that's about it for the
useful codecs. Also you can compile with --enable-tremor (if you've
installed the "Tremor" integer-only ogg decoder lib) to make ogg
playback a ton faster, so it's really only AC3 and WMA that matter.
And Fabrice is working on integer-only decoders for these formats in
libavcodec, so someday float should be entirely irrelevant to mplayer
