Of course... those aren't Linux apps, they work flawlessly on lots of
operating systems (even on Windows!). Add mplayer to that and lots of other
closer-to-the-hardware apps.
Java also works fine and native.
Anything you see on the ports collection will work, generally only
closed-source apps need Linux emulation. Open-source ones run native.
Even lots of closed-source apps run just fine in Linux emulation.
Some vendors even provide FreeBSD-specific software, such as the nvidia
driver for FreeBSD.
