You probably have an mplayer binary in /usr/bin or something. At least in a 
directory that comes earlier in your path.


/usr/local/bin/mplayer		# this should run the new version
which mplayer			# prints path of old binary
rm -i `which mplayer`		# remove that one
mplayer				# should run the new version
