have you tried typing
rpm -U mplayer****.rpm

and seeing what the messages are? ofcourse this should be done as root.

You mean it just hangs during the install? Sound like a stale lock file. Try doing this(as root):

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm --rebuilddb

Well, you have a bunch of failed dependencies (you need to install those packages before you install your rpm). Ofcourse you can force the rpm installation although thats not recommended. Which distribution are u using? Go to control center of your distribution and install those packages b4 trying to install mplayer.
Hope it helps
