This still seems to rely on a 10 Jan. snapshot of the mplayer source
code.  In the intervening ~7 months there have been a number of
important changes to mplayer, including support for the On2
Technologies/Google VP8 codec that has been adopted as part of the
open webm format:

This is currently being used by Youtube, among others, and I think
that this and the other changes are too important to overlook.  Could
we please update to a more recent mplayer snapshot?
