The problem seems to be with DGA video. I also get a signal 11 with -vo dga:
VO: [dga] 352x208 => 352x208 BGR 32-bit
vo_dga: DGA 2.0 available :-) Can switch resolution AND depth!
vo_dga: Selected hardware mode  400 x  300 @  75 Hz @ depth 24, bitspp 32.
vo_dga: Video parameters by codec: 352 x 208, depth 24, bitspp 32.
vo_dga: Framebuffer mapping failed!!!
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.
init_vo failed

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
   Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
   disassembly. For details, see DOCS/bugreports.html#crash.b.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
   It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc
   version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read 
   and follow the instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you 
   this information when reporting a possible bug.

Try running mplayer with -vo xv or -vo x11 or even -vo aa. The best 
option in general seems to be -vo xv, so use that if at all possible.
