But inside the "MPlayer OSX" packages (right-click in Finder and
select "Show Package Contents" you will find the actual mplayer
executable.  I assume that's how you figured out the weird path to put
in the MythVideo settings.

So, get into Terminal and cd to that path.  Run mplayer directly
(./mplayer) with the -identify option, and that should work to get
that output.
