well if you can give some details about it. personally i NEVER use the GUI, it's so much easier and faster to sort it all out from the command line. i don't think i managed to get dvd's to play with the gui when i tried it, remember that the gui is still officailly unstable. the docs at mplayhq.hu are very very good, and you should read them all in great detail. also check the mplayer-users email list and archive, which you can get to from the site.

cos it's just so much more versatile than xine. it can play dozens of file formats, and can run on a hell of a lot of video outputs, even three outputs for not running under X. AND it has a REALLY fast divx encoder. encode a 2 hour dvd completely in under 3 hours. it just plain whups it compeltely, even if you need to experiment a little with it to get it working best. For example there are at least half a dozen different ways to decode divx films, one uses the exact same files as xine, some use highly optimized methods, which means that i can watch divx on my p200.
