MPlayer 1.2.1 was released on January 24, 2016

Hey! A new release!

MPlayer 1.2.1 is a bugfix release from the 1.2 branch. If you're using
MPlayer 1.2 you are encouraged to upgrade.

MPlayer 1.2.1 fixes many crashes with fuzzed files, squashes many bugs
and includes some compatibility enhancements. A lot of bugs are fixed
also in FFmpeg, you can check their changelog for details. It's also
easier to build this release with a system-wide version of FFmpeg,
since you don't need to copy internal FFmpeg headers anymore.

Mplayer 1.2.1 is compatible with the FFmpeg 2.8.x releases. The tarball
includes a copy of FFmpeg 2.8.5 (the latest at this date), so you don't
need to fetch it separately. Just like 1.2, this version will not work
with current FFmpeg master branch, nor with the upcoming FFmpeg 2.9 (or
3.0, or whatever name will be chosen). If you need to work with the
latest FFmpeg, please use svn version.

If you're following the development from svn HEAD you can ignore this;
all the bug fixes are also included in the development version.

MPlayer 1.2.1 can be downloaded by HTTP or FTP (xz 13 MB, gzip, 19 MB)
