Is mplayer-nogui suppose to have no OSD? If so, which dependency would I need to install to get the OSD? I do not want to install the entire mplayer(with GUI).

You don't need the GUI for the OSD. Unless the OSD is disabled on the command line, is't most likely that you don't have the fonts installed.
If you run the windows version, copy arial.ttf from the windowsfonts to the mplayer directory and use the -font switch.
If not, you need to unpack the font archive to /usr/local/share/mplayer/font (or something similar)
