Comment (by MarcusCalhoun-Lopez):

 The first error: {{{error: use of undeclared identifier
 'x264_bit_depth'}}} is due to the fact that the
 c494cdea722867805ca672dee37ba336 recent upgrade x264] changed the API.

 The API change caused problems with
 older versions of FFmpeg].\\
 Unfortunately, MPlayer uses its own version of FFmpeg, which is too old.

 There is a [https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/pull/3641 pull
 request] to fix the problem in mplayer-devel.

 Packporting these changes to MPlayer would be difficult since newer
 versions of FFmpeg seem to break older versions of MPlayer.

 My suggestion is that once the PR is merged, you switch to mplayer-
 Most (all?) ports use it as the default dependency anyway.
