Some time ago we did some work on that (we = Reynaldo Verdejo and I )
building an activity, the first version can be watched here:

the trick is to reparent the mplayer window in a gtk drawingarea or similar,
for that you need to call mplayer with:

       mplayer -wid PARENT_WINDOW_XID

I don't have the code here at this moment but is not difficult to do it...
