MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video - MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.

Please, have a look on google with "signal 11".

Signal 11 is segmentation violation (or segmentation fault/segfault) and is the "standard" error when something is not right. It's caused by the app trying to access unallocated memory and is often caused by some stray pointer, however the cause can be anything from buggy code to bad compiler optimizations or faulty hardware.

As for the requested disassembly they probably mean a disassembly of the function that caused gmplayer to crash. Get the backtrace as Walt said then for the function at the top run "disassemble func" where func is the name of the topmost function in the backtrace.
