Yes, and to give a hint:
$ cat playlist.asx | tr '\\' /

I don't think that'll break anything, but I don't deal with asx files at
all. Make sure there never occur any backslashes for anything other than
DOS-style paths.

The rest just depends on how you want to set it up. You could make a
simple wrapper something like:

cat $1 | tr '\\' / > /tmp/playlist
shift 1
mplayer -playlist /tmp/playlist $@
