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
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.
