It looks like you don't have OSD menu support compiled into your copy of MPlayer. If you're compiling MPlayer yourself, you need to pass the --enable-menu parameter when you run ./configure and then configure the OSD menu.

This link here details how to go about enabling the OSD menu:

If you installed MPlayer from a binary package in your distribution, you may find that there is a separate package that includes OSD menu support, that might be named something like mplayer-menu or similar. Try having a browse through the available packages in your distribution, or if you downloaded a binary of MPlayer from a website, have a closer look to see if there is a separate package you can download that includes OSD menu support.

I hope this helps, peace out. :)
