 From the man page ( http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/man/en/mplayer.1.html ):

MPlayer has a fully configurable, command-driven control layer which 
allows you to control MPlayer using keyboard, mouse, joystick or remote 
control (with LIRC). See the −input option for ways to customize it.


−input <commands>
This option can be used to configure certain parts of the input system. 
Paths are relative to ~/.mplayer/.
Prints all commands that can be bound to keys.

(So, run: "mplayer -input cmdlist" to find out what you should use for 
LIRC commands. See, also, the documentation: 
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/control.html#lirc .)
