Please, we strongly discourage binary packages of mplayer as they
a) won't work on systems with different cpus
b) will run very slow because of disabled optimizations

This is because most of mplayers assembleroptimizations are choosen at 

Src.rpms are ok if thex properly use the configure script from mplayer to 
detect cpu/system features.

Btw. this is also stated in mplayers documentation.
