Looks like they rejected the bug report.
Then it is an issues in debian mplayer package?
For mplayer at packages.debian.org:
issue being discussed is that mplayer binary from the current debian
mplayer package (version 1.0~rc3+svn20090405-1),
references 'codec_bmp_tags' symbol, that is there in libavformat52
currently in debian, but was removed from later upstream libavformat52
release and thus is missing in libavformat52 from debian-multimedia.
