  I wildly guess it is because there is no mplayer source package.
MPlayer packages were removed from Debian testing and unstable. One
can use apt-get build-dep mplayer2 as a workaround. Probably additonally 

  apt-get install libgnutls28-dev

(libgnutls-dev fails for me on unstable atm, not sure how this should
work normally...)

to get TLS support via intrenal FFmpeg.

  That leaves the question where the OP's first version of mplayer came
from. But maybe that was on stable and the builds were on unstable. Maybe
the OP can answer. At least on Debian unstable

  apt-get build-dep mplayer

gives me an error message saying source package not found and an exit status
of 100.
