I never said that the development stopped, it's just that
there aren't any releases. And please do not apply comercial
software practices to OSS projects. They dont work and cloud
your mind so you cannot see what's really going on.
Before judging the development and the developers of MPlayer
have a look on what they are doing, and you'll see that
a lot of work is being done. None of these improvements
and new features are introduced with a flashy road show
or presentations at big conferences with jumping monkeys,
but they are still done, lots of them.

The true CS students do not need to know how to program.
They learn how to abstract the process of programming to
the point of making programmers obsolete.
