Codec requires palette_control, which is deprecated and not support by MPlayer.
The reason for that is that it does not work properly with any multithreaded and/or buffering player, this in particularly means that it does not work properly in ffplay either (palette changes usually result in one frame that is wrong).
Issue is in libavcodec using deprecated and broken APIs, patches to fix probably exist already but so far always got stuck in bike-shedding with people complaining but not offering any working solution (and sometimes insisting on a non-working one).
