You really need to post the full MPlayer output, not just what you think
is important.

Ogg/Vorbis/Theora.  With old releases of MPlayer, you need
libtheora/libvorbis.  With newer releases, ffmpeg's built-in support
works fine...  Try with -demuxer lavf and see if it works.

Of course, you might just have a buggy build.
