You could do some searching for something like pbone mplayer rpm . When you find the rpm that you want, download it to a directory like /home. Then you install it with a command like ....
rpm -Uvh mplayer-<whatever-numbers>.rpm

Or you could let yum do the work for you!

Livna has a lot of goodies which may be hard to find elsewhere including mplayer and I use yum for just that occasion.
Create a file called /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo and paste this line into it.

name=Fedora Extras

Then run this command: rpm --import

Then run this command: yum update
Then run this command: yum install mplayer or maybe yum install mplayer-gui

Note: livna has other sections for yum such as RPMS.testing , RPMS.stable

If you are interested in those, just add them to the /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo like this ....
name=Fedora Extras

name=Fedora Extras

name=Fedora Extras

If you want to see what packages are available, you can go directly to the site and look around or you can type the command: yum list
