Try launching mplayer from the command line. It will act the same
from there as when launching it from myth. Once you get it working
from a shell, use the same command in myth. Keep in mind the mplayer
binary is in a location like this: /Applications/MPlayer OS X 2.app/
Contents/Resources/mplayer.app/Contents/MacOS/mplayer not /
Applications/MPlayer OS X 2.app/Contents/Resources/mplayer.app
