Yes, and so the lack of avisynth.dll is not a problem here. It's just
because MPlayer is trying different demultiplexers/decoders one after
another to decode the data it gets - but this data is a Web page, not a
video stream, so it fails.
The error message means that MPlayer failed to try avisynth.dll on the
data, but not that it was really needed here - it wouldn't "play" a HTML
etc. document, after all.

If there is a way to extract the video's URL, it could possibly be played
by MPlayer if MySpace doesn't use too many "security" measures. You may
do a Web search for such link extractor.
