I think you just didnt set the vo for your mplayer, do mplayer -vo x11 (later on you might want to fool around with the other ones cuz X11 is the slowest).

you want to create a link from the ttf font you want to use, e.g. /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/truetype/arial.ttf to either....

/home/user/.mplayer/subfont.ttf
or
/usr/share/mplayer/subfont.ttf

so do this...

ln -s /blah/arial.ttf /otherblah/subfont.ttf

should load fine with the on screen display. you could always temporarily not use the on screen display by setting -osdlevel 0 on the command line.

X11 is a more generic video output, but it will use at least twice as much CPU time as XV, so just be aware that it may impact your system's performance more than a more optimized video output method
