not exactly much to go on there... run mplayer though gdb to see what's happening when it's crashing.
Code:
gdb mplayer
run
bt
this will print the stack of function and library calls that were being done when it died. hopefully it will point to an external library that you can simply re-emerge.

Different person, same problem. It was working, now it doesn't. It doesn't report any initialization stuff so I figure it's early on.

Code:
GNU gdb 6.0

(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/bin/mplayer
warning: Unable to find dynamic linker breakpoint function.

and track explicitly loaded dynamic code.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

ouch, well that's less than useless... might i suggest compiling it natively if you haven't already? it's really very easy (well as easy as any other source install)

I dunno about easier, I compiled it "natively" since the .9 level versions (on RedHat systems).

I rebuilt and no help. Even just "mplayer" had the same result.

BUT!!
I found the problem. It was OpenGL. I ran opengl-update to switch to x11 GL and it worked fine.

So for you gentoo users, try that if you get the same symptoms.

But now, -vo sdl doesn't work anymore (it did before it all went south). sdl is/was my favored video output.
