Just to save everyone some time:
The project is no longer active here. Go to http://www.mplayerhq.hu/ to get MPlayer OSX.
Originally, there was a project called MPlayer, a which was a movie player specifically for the *Linux* platform. The MPlayerOSX project here on SourceForge was a port of MPlayer to *MacOSX*. However, since then, the original MPlayer expanded its scope to be a cross-platform movie player, and MacPlayerOSX was merged into it. The sourceforge MPlayerOSX is obsolete.
Some confusing info:
* The version numbers of the project on sourceforge are in the 2.0 range. The main MPlayer project is still numbered 1.0. Nonetheless, the main project is more current.
* The mplayerhq.hu site still has links to the sourceforge MPlayerOSX.
Some clarifying info:
"You can get a native GUI for MPlayer together with precompiled MPlayer binaries for Mac OS X from the MPlayerOSX project, but be warned: that project is not active anymore. Fortunately, MPlayerOSX has been taken over by a member of the MPlayer team. Preview releases are available from our download page and an official release should arrive soon."
