The code where it is checked the eof is near the end of mplayer.c.
check where it says:

  /* detect wether the sub has changed or not */

} // while(!eof)

mp_msg(MSGT_GLOBAL,MSGL_V,"EOF code: %d  \n",eof);


By the way, the "// while(!eof)" must be at the next }, not where it is.

I think your idea is good, but there may be usefull if mplayer don't exits
whenit reaches the end of file even if it happends normally and not with right
arrow. It may be a command line or config switch because it is a preference
of the user.
