Strange, because it works for me and for many others.
What *-vo* are you using?

Post full, uncut mplayer verbose terminal output.
If you using this command in script and do not have any terminal output
then run it that way:

DISPLAY=:0 mplayer -v -fs -slave -quiet -idle -loop 0 -playlist
> /home/barry/playlist1.txt -shuffle -input file=/home/barry/pipe
1>/tmp/mplayer.log 2>&1 &

Run it for feew seconds playback then terminate mplayer and post it on
pastebin (it will be looong log)
