I do not know a general answer to your problem, but
in the case of mplayer, I use something like the following in my
.emacs file:

(defun ll-dired-do-with-filename (action &rest args)
  "Apply action to currently selected filename"
  (let ((filename (dired-get-filename nil t)))
	(if filename
		(apply action filename args)
	  (message "No file selected"))))

(when (featurep 'emacspeak)
  (define-key dired-mode-map "\C-cp"
	(lambda ()
	  (ll-dired-do-with-filename 'emacspeak-m-player))))

With this, you can do "C-c p" when on an mp3 file in dired and the
m-player integration of emacspeak will start. Do "C-h m" then to see
the available commands.
If you are only interested in the audio, make sure you have the
"novideo" option set in your mplayer configuration file. This should
prevent it from stealing focus when launched under X.
