mplayer ordinarily would be run by a regular user, not root. In any event, you need to supply a file name as a parameter, eg, "mplayer abc.mpg" or whatever. Just typing "mplayer" is insufficient. -- J.W.

Do you have a Skin installed to:
/usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin and is it named "default"?

Cool
