mplayer can't play more than one file yet.
we are hard working on this, but it's not working yet.

the basic design of mpalyer is somehow bad, so it is not
possible to go back and restart playing another file.
(code not reentrant, uses many load-time initialized globals,
video out drivers has no close function etc...)

as a workaround, you can do:
find . -name \*.mpg -exec mplayer -fs {} \;
