Not true. Software rendering refers to the display of 3D objects in OpenGL.
 Unless you have a very strange setup, mplayer won't be using OpenGL to
display video data.
Not strange at all, actually mplayer can use OpenGL.
# mplayer -vo gl

I think mplayer will go through available output drivers till it finds
one available.  So in some cases opengl output may occur.  Although if
you installed properly from RPMFusion/Livna I don't think should

I've got a box with a geforce 5200 LE, and it displays video just fine if I
use the "evil" Nvidia driver. The "nouveau" driver (which you probably have)
isn't quite ready for prime time.
As I recall the "nouveau" driver was not shipped as default in Fedora
9, which I think the OP is using.
Whatever its origin, nv was the driver name.
My current problem is getting suspend to disk working again.
