Given that MPlayer rarely does stable releases, and that 1.x is 
currently really old, I suppose it works with mplayer svn checkout which 
the developers recommend. You have done nothing wrong and your fix was 
the right thing to do (at least as a temporary solution).

I may suggest using gnome-mplayer, which is another mplayer gui 
front-end (doesn't really depend on GNOME stuff past GTK+ I believe).
