I didn't have to do anything extra on my MD. You could try installing the missing packages with apt-get and then dpkg -i the mplayer-player package again.
I'd be nice to know why mplayer is not installed on your fresh system though.

Myth just launches just doesn't seem to communicate, I would really like to avoid a rebuild, is there a way to re-run the previous scripts? If the one didn't run, what other scripts do I need to rerun?
set the md up to always stream from the backend: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8861.0
You should now be able to build MPlayer_Player and test vdpau.
Problem: after changing ~/.mplayer/config and /root/.mplayer/config, i was able to watch under linuxxmce AND kde H264 videos with full sound.
After that, i did try to create a media scenario. Did rebuild the MD and regenerate the orbiter. I deleted the scenario. Did rebuild the MD and regenerate the orbiter.
Result: no more H264 or any video with .m2ts extension opens under linuxmce.
