I think you sould try to use ALSA, it has a very wide variety of 
supported devices.
However, ALSA is not in your mplayer's ao-list. This means either you 
disabled it
during compilation, or it is not installed at all.
You may go to http://www.alsa-project.org/  and download latest release.
You should have kernel sources or headers, I cannot remember what is 
For more information see ALSA docs, I had no problems installing 1.0.6. 
at the moment is 1.0.8. It should be even better :)
