You can change the font and size through the setup menu in xine (misc tab).
If you're not happy with the type of font, you can read on how to change font 
types here:

If you have questions regarding the font types, please post them to the 
xine-user mailing list, which is the better place to ask this.

Normally you would want to use the xv video driver (you'll get this by 
starting xine like this : xine -V xv). In this case xine will activate 
seperate controls for brightness/contrast/saturation/hue if they are 
supported by your video card and driver.
When you use xshm output you probably don't have these controls.

Sorry I never use mplayer, so I can't help you with this one :-(
