It looks like this backport is currently broken with an unmet
dependancy, I'm getting:

csamuel at ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install mplayer
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  mplayer: Depends: libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.18.3) but 1.18.2-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

Here is what the policy is:

csamuel at ubuntu:~$ apt-cache policy mplayer

  Candidate: 2:1.0~rc2-0ubuntu1~gutsy1

and here is the policy for libpango:
