I might be wrong, but I think you need to just move an mplayer font to the correct directory. They are set up to run on a number of languages, but it's up to the installer to select the correct one. If I remember correctly, they're in a directory like /usr/share/mplayer/(something), and they include english, english_GB (the UK), and others.

If you goto the mplayer website (http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design6/news.html) you can download fonts for mplayer.
