Can't you pause the mplayer while you want to make the screen shot?
-vo x11
'p' will pause, pressing it 2nd time the video will continue

In GNOME you should be able to take a screenshot by pressing Alt-PrintScrn
while the mplayer window is active then.

It is using 'gnome-panel-screenshot -window' then. Without Alt it takes a
shot of whole visible workspace.
