Run Mplayer from a terminal, to see if it will give any debug info, it ususally does. Then when the system gets slow, run ps aux or top and see what is sucking your resources then use kill or killall to kill it. Also mplayer can get slow due to bad audio output, use -ao sdl flag with mplayer, also try other -vo modes (mplayer -vo help for info)
Good luck
