Please feel free to provide a sample (so I can test here with VDPAU hardware),
but it might be necessary to compile yourself, I believe there is an apt-get
incantation that provides all necessary development headers and libraries (sound
and opengl) and some unneeded more (xvid and others).

After that, just do
$ svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
$ cd mplayer
$ ./configure && make
I never install MPlayer (so you can at least test the result without
installing), you can move the resulting binary wherever you need it
(/usr/local/bin) if you prefer not to install.
