Mplayer *does* have hardware requirements which are a subset of the video 
hardware that will run XFree86!

The documentation is not very clear if it will run OK on a basic bitblit 
accelerated frame buffer card (e.g. ATI Rage IIC 4MB).  Perhaps the Gatos 
driver is all that it needed for ATI Mach 64, I haven't tried it.

But people should be aware that this won't work on everything.
