Mplayer and RH9


HI all!!!

I use RH9 and although i can install mplayer without any error, i cannot see any movie, i just listen to audio
I have an ATI Radeon 9500 Pro with the schneider drivers for xfree 4.3
I also had installed before ./configure of the win32 codecs, so i thinks i'm not missing anything
When i was using MDK9.0 i had no problem at all, i don't know why with RH9 i have this strange problem

Any solution or comment is welcomed

OK, here they are....

Mplayer output:
vo: X11 running at 1280x1024 with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0.0" => local display)
It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support, and read Xv section of DOCS/video.html !
See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

xvinfo output:
X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
no adaptors present

I also ran apt-get install mplayer, and it runs with vo x11, put i cannot modify the image, so i cannot put it in fullscreen.

Hope this help solving the problem

Thanks in advance for all the time spent here
