There's a way to solve this via mplayer menu. Do the following:
Start mplayer. Click OK for the error message about the subfont.
Right-click on any part of mplayer to access its menu.
Go to preferences (there would appear a warning message, just click OK).
Click on font tab.
Browse the font you like.
I am OK with this, if you like, you can copy and paste for you:
Hope that helps.

I installed mplayer and when I click on the icon i get
I installed mplayer numerous ways. From a .bz2, .deb and compiling it from
instructions which seems to work bur I get the same error.
Lest something think I did not do homework, I goggled forever and found a
few examples for people who had the same problem and tried the solutions to
no avail. I found out about something called symlink which I googled to
death as well. I tried creating a subfont.ttf in the ~/.mplayer directory, I
even copied and pasted some fonts both in ~/mplayer and in
~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf, I got the fonts from /usr/share/fonts. I tried to do
a symlink, I reasearched symlink and came up with the ln command and tried
to link the ./mplayer/subfont.ttf with a font in /usr/share/fonts.
Obviously I dont know what the hell I am doing. Noob syndrom, sorry.
Could someone please help me by telling me in plain english what I need to
do or direct me to someplace that gives the solution in non-uber geek
