try killing speakup just as you run mplayer then start speakup again the 
way you killed it.  When I use mplayer which isn't often, I have a 
configuration file that disables video and that helps over here.  Please 
consider upgrading Debian, you're two versions behind and one of the 
things those version updates do is fix security problems.
