Well, I suppose it's your only choice then.. Note that I'm not 100% sure
that xmms plugin demuxer works fine in modern mplayer, but if no one
broke it, maybe it still does..

Yes, you'll have to build & install gtk1 and development packages to it;
you'll also need glib1, likely old libpng (I believe they changed api
somehow at some point) and bunch of other old packages. And hope it all
will compile fine with modern gcc version..

Note also that you'll need 32-bit versions of all this, also 32-bit
version of mplayer (which will require 32-bit version of all the stuff
that mplayer needs to playback various formats, and it's quite a big
list); 64-bit mplayer won't be compatible with this binary 32-bit xmms
