Check mplayer's configuration for what the video out device is.

man mplayer

try "mplayer -vo help" for a list of drivers to try from the command line.

(did you upgrade anything since mplayer last worked?)

You can also get all the things you want by exploring the menues in the GUI frontend you use. The configuration dialog has tabs fo each of the things you ask about. Have a look around.

Of course - there is always the option of removing and reinstalling mplayer...
