Assuming you get no tearing with compositing disabled, probably xfwm4
doesn't consider the mplayer window 'fullscreen'. I used to have the
same problem with a few apps with compiz (though it also allows
unredirecting windows manually with the 'Extra WM Actions' plugin), but
it seems quite reliable now.
