You need skins.

[skin] file ( /usr/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin ) not found.

Go to mplayer's site and grab the default skin. Put it in /usr/share/mplayer/Skin. You could also make a direcrory called .mplayer in your home directory for a new config file, etc.

decompress the archives in to the directory it is looking for, and symlink your chosen one to default.

The new default skin is Blue. Rename the blue theme to default and put in /usr/local/share/mplayer/skin.
P.S.: excuse my bad english

Is this the proper command to rename?

Skin]# rename Blue-1.0.tar to default-1.0.tar

because it doesn't work.

I've got /usr/share/mplayer/Skin/ , now how do I go about getting to /usr/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin?

[root@localhost root]# mkdir /usr/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin
mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin': No such file or directory

please follow the commands you were given above.

tar -xvvjf file.tar.bz2

this would not have left you with a .tar file, but a directory containing the skin.

rename is also not a valiud unix command, use "mv" in future.

first you need to create default directory and then skin within default - this is a proper and only way
cd /usr/share/mplayer/Skin
mkdir default
mkdir default/skin
but as acid put it earlier there is no need to whore your system up with unneeded directories and crap
just go to /usr/share/mplayer/Skin
cd /usr/share/mplayer/Skin
tar xfvj /full/or/relative/path/to/Blue-1.0.tar.bz2
ln -sf Blue* default
should be enough, so in the case you want new default theme just perform the above steps for another theme.
