My first thought would be to check your mplayer version. Mplayer 1 has 
problems with some videos and can't get the correct video length of those. 
It's kind of strange though, that all your videos are affected.

I assume, mplayer has no problems actually playing those video files?

Can mplayer identify the image length when you do it manually?
mplayer -identify -frames 0 -vc null -vo null -ao null "$VIDEOFILE" |grep
