Movie player problem as local user


I am using fedora 8 os on Hp 500 laptop. My movie players ( vlc, mplayer ) lag in fullscreen mode when logged in as local user. They play perfectly when logged in as root . How do i correct this problem as i do no want to log in as root every time i watch a movie.

Movie players were not compiled from source, used rpm packages from f8-everything, livna
