Simple. Just fire up a terminal and type
$ mplayer <file-to-play>

<file-to-play> is the file that you want to play.

There is also a nice gui which you can start by typing
$ gmplayer

but it is not always available.
Another thing you might try is:
$ man mplayer

this will give you much info, and it will help you quite a bit
understanding the features of mplayer if you read it and experiment.

keep in mind that mplayer is not just a video playback program... It is
a powerful tool, and like most powerful tools, it is meant to be used
from commandline

have fun using the best player in the world...

There are 10 types of people in the world.
Those that understand binary and those that don't.
