Just as a correction: MPlayer does not use coverty.
Atleast there has been never any discussion on the mailinglist
about using it. And i doubt that any of the developers would
have started using it without anyone else knowing it.

I also have no idea where they got their numbers from.
They might have taken it from our bugzilla, but i'm not sure. 

I learned about coverty myself just a few hours ago. I thought
about contacting them, but haven't done yet. I suppose that
all this is just a PR gag to promote their product.
