I managed to get it to work, thanks to your tips.

Following the instructions in MPlayer's website [1], I built mplayer 
with ffmpeg-mt (multi-threaded ffmpeg). Playing 1080p movies with two 
threads (-lavdopts threads=2) they play as smooth as they can get.

Meaning that even without a vdpau compatible card, a decent enough CPU 
(2,4 GHz in my case) plays 1080p without cutting down on quality.

Thank you everyone,
Paulo Santos
