I've tried other players, they works fine.

That is a rather old MPlayer version, might be worth trying something newer.
The error sequence is very strange, this should mean that your ALSA refused to accept S16LE input format.
Any ideas what formats that device supports?
You can also make MPlayer pick a specific one, e.g. -af format=s24le will make it use 24 bit sample format.

Can't explain why or how that would happen, never seen the issue, and can't do anything about it without further information, so closing for the moment.
