As configuration file of mplayer shows that it takes ffmpeg form git repos.

if ! test -e ffmpeg ; then
    echo "No FFmpeg checkout, press enter to download one with git or CTRL+C to abort"
    read tmp
    if ! git clone --depth 1 git://git.videolan.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg ; then
        rm -rf ffmpeg
        echo "Failed to get a FFmpeg checkout"
        exit 1
    touch ffmpeg/mp_auto_pull

while I am taking ffmpeg code  directly as tar.
And both have source code difference.

As said, when you configure MPlayer, the latest version of
FFmpeg is downloaded from the official FFmpeg repository,
it is therefore not possible that there is a difference
between FFmpeg (from the FFmpeg repository) and FFmpeg in
MPlayer (which also comes from the FFmpeg repository).

You do not have to use any other libavcodec library in
MPlayer then the one that configure downloads (although
it is possible).

Please do not top-post, it is considered rude here, Carl Eugen
