It's good to know there are still people over there who are interested ;).

One more information: before the 12-bit display support has been added to 
mplayer, I managed to get necessary changes included in a widely used ffmpeg 
video library. Thus, it should be now relatively easy to extend 12-bit 
display support to other ffmpeg based media players / media i/o libraries, 
like vlc or libxine, if someone is interested.
