Yes, there are some known incompatibilities between the various repos,
but that's only because the package sets overlap. As for "known problems",
how come I haven't seen any reports from you in bugzilla.livna.org?
Either support your claim with facts or stop spreading FUD. Livna's
MPlayer RPM is the _only_ official RPM package, mind you.

Which is the version with GPL incompatible license. I'm not sure it's even
legal to distribute mplayer linked against that faad2 version.

oppression to develop psychic muscles.
