You don't mention what mplayer you have, but in any case, I think you
need an updated mplayer.  IIRC, it was only recently that the mplayer
got arts support.  I belive that you will need to compile it yourself,
or find a better mirror than I have:

  deb http://marillat.free.fr/ unstable main

That line doesn't have a .deb with arts support built in as far as I can
tell (Just downloaded the 0.90-i686 player, and no arts in the "-ao
help" output).

I have compiled mplayer many times in the past without much trouble
FWIW. (http://mplayerhq.hu).
