For plain (no GUI frontend/shell) Win32 MPlayer to use with HX,
the one to get is sherpya's build:

http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php

He specifically addressed some issues to make it work under HX,
and he does frequent updates. Be careful though -- he has
separate builds optimized for Pentium 4, Pentium 3, and Athlon
CPUs, as well as a generic build with rtm CPU detection.

You'll also need HX 2.17 (earlier versions won't work?):

With my current system (MS-DOS 7.1, P4, 2g4Hz, 512mb, ATI
Rage 128 Pro Ultra), the video aspect of MPlayer works
flawlessly. I had some previous issues with i845/i865 m/b video
(not just with MPlayer either!), so i switched to the ATI card --
much better! Still no sound though (i'm using Intel m/b ICH4 --
no SB). I don't believe SB Live! will work (directly) with
MPlayer under DOS -- you might need to have the SB16 emulator
driver installed. (Even then?)

I think Khusraw also did some recent MPlayer DPMI builds -- do
a search here. (You don't need HX with those, just CWSDPMI.)
