I'm not a Mac user, but I noticed a few things when I viewed that 
sourceforge site:

1. It says: MPLAYEROSX source is now on http://www.mplayerhq.hu
because we have enough free time to improve mplayerosx......

2. To show how postprocessing reduced artifacts, they used JPEG compressed 
images, introducing new artifacts along the way.

Anyway, if you know how to get from source to binary, I'd say grab the 
tarball or latest CVS of mplayerhq and you'll be fine.
