No.  It'd be pointless to do so in my opinion, since MPlayer is not
supposed to be a Winamp-type music player.  I suggest trying one or more
of the following:

XMMS       http://www.xmms.org/
zinf       http://www.zinf.org/
beepmp     http://www.sosdg.org/~larne/w/BMP_Homepage
Rhythmbox  http://www.rhythmbox.org/
