What exactly do you want to do? To me it sounds as if you want mplayer to
access the hardware directly. I think this is the wrong approach, since you
have webcam support in Video4Linux and DirectX/DirectShow on the Windows
So, if you would like to use a windows driver for a webcam on Linux, you would
either need to reverse-engineer the protocol, or use something like
NDISWrapper/DriverLoader/Captive to use windows device drivers. In both
cases, you would write a driver for Video4Linux, which mplayer (or any other
application) can access.
I'm not sure if there's Video4Linux support in mplayer, though.
