that's the correct output... mplayer is a console based media play, not a gui one... you need to read the instructions there and use it correctly.

I have tried it and for god sake I dont understand what is in it for me to enable the gui. I am really sorry but I dont know how to tell you that I am not understanding anything...Ok help me to understand this... after writing the command here what it says
[code]SYNOPSIS
mplayer [options] [ file | URL | playlist | - ]
mplayer [global options] file1 [specific options] [file2] [specific
options]
mplayer [global options] {group of files and options} [group specific
options]
mplayer dvd://[title | [start_title]-end_title ] [options]
mplayer vcd://track[/device]
mplayer tv://[channel] [options]
mplayer dvb://[card_number@]channel [options]
mplayer mf://filemask [-mf options] [options]
mplayer [cdda|cddb]://track[-endtrack][:speed][/device] [options]
mplayer cue://file[:track] [options]

[userasswd@]URL[ort] [options]
mplayer sdp://file [options]
mplayer mpst://host[ort]/URL [options][code]

I think it is talking about the text based command isn't it??? Actually my question was how to enable the gui and get rid of this text based thing

open a terminal and
Code:

mplayer generally gets installed with a gui. I believe you installed mplayer via yum.

Did you also install mplayer-gui.

try
Code:
yum install mplayer-gui
