If you installed via UCI, you have to remember its mountpoint is not writable. You can temporarily copy the directory with contents to another directory name (e.g., mplayer-temp), run mydsl-load on the original UCI to unmount it, copy the temp directory back to the original name*, then modify it as you need, and either tarball it as a tar.gz, as a new custom UCI, or leave it be if you're using a hard drive install or have plenty space on whatever medium you have /opt mounted. (If this is for hard drive install, you should probably convert your UCIs so they're persistent directories instead of mountable apps anyway.)
*- Use the same, identical, case-sensitive, etc. name to prevent errors due to things being linked to self-contained (and related dependency) directories.
