First - there is no MPlayer on Android but MPlayer fork for Android, so
ask author of the fork


Secondly - 600MHz Android phone/tablet is too slow to play more
complicated formats as H264 with profile greater than BASELINE (anything
that have B-frames are no go) or RMVB (which is totally about B-frames
and variable frame rate for extra).

I personally convert videos to either H264 BASELINE profile or to XviD
NOQPEL, NOGMC for playback on my HTC Magic 518MHz (formally 528MHz, but
latest kernel I'm using haven't have such frequency in it's freq table).
