Okay, then I will have to compile it myself or upgrade to 16.04 LTS.
Good to know.

See for yourself: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/man/en/mplayer.1.txt
The respective portion reads:

    -pausing <0-3> (MPlayer only)
        Specifies  the  default  pausing  behaviour  of
        commands,  i.e. whether  MPlayer will continue playback or
        stay paused after the command has finished.  See
        DOCS/tech/slave.txt for further details.
