You might also like to try installing the a2dp binaries and scripts using these simplified and mostly automated instructions[1]. You can probably jump straight to step 5 as it sounds like you have all the pre-requisites covered. :)

I would suggest that you uninstall your current mplayer before trying to install the a2dp debs, and also delete any .mplayer configuration directories that may be lying about in /home/user/
