Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Try running it with xv, so:
mplayer -vo xv filename.avi
To get a fullscreen, I use the -zoom option:
mplayer -vo xv -zoom filename.avi
Then you can maximize and I think it max's as well.
Can you post the exact error message for trying to compile the gui? Also, make sure you are installing the correct png lib it's looking for. Most distro's have most graphic libs compiled in already, so you shouldn't be running into errors about that, unless you are running an old, or customized install.
Anyway, yeah, if you can post that error that'd be great.
