It depends on what the programmer has specified signal handlers for, so if 
they'd coded something just to deal with a user getting disconnected (SIGHUP) 
but not for ^C (SIGTERM) then you're better off sending that program SIGHUP 
rather than SIGTERM.

Not to mention submitting a patch make it handle SIGTERM too.. ;-)

Fortunately mplayer does the right thing in this case.
