I don't know if this is the case, but probably mplayer was compiled using the CVS version and who did it forgot to get the libavcodec, which doesn't come with the CVS version. I suggest you to download the source from the page and compile it.

I had the same error message whenever I attempted to start mplayer. Solved by forcing a downgrade to libfaad2-0 version 2.0.0-0.5 from the stable repository, and making sure I had removed conflicting repositories, such as rarewares...
