Well, of course the slave mode is trying to read from stdin: that is exactly
what it is for:

"Instead of intercepting keyboard events, MPlayer will read commands
separated by a newline (\n) from stdin."

If you do not want MPlayer to read from stdin, just do not add -slave. It
does not make any sense otherwise.

What is your final goal?
