The problem does not seem to be related with mine - the mplayer release in
Ubuntu repos is much older and I get no errors from MPlayer.
In the early days I did get this warning:
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
... but that was simply because of the bluez-alsa package. I found online
info that removing the package solves this minor issue. I removed the
package and, indeed, I no longer see the warning. (I do not use bluetooth,
so the package removal does not affect my usage.)
Other ALSA-based applications play sounds fine, for example Flash Player
