What's your video output device? How did you compile it? Try this:
mplayer -vo xv /path/to/video

And see if you get anything.

Cool

I bet... you compiled it from source without having the XFree86-devel rpm installed on your system, as mplayer will default to fbdev if x11 of xv are not available, which will only be availbel if that devel package is installed.

No, that's perfect. However, I may have been mis-interpreted

/path/to/video is actually nothing more than meaning for you to type the path to your video so if your video is in /home/video/stuff/video.avi then:
mplayer -vo xv /home/video/stuff/video.avi

Not actually:
/path/to/video

Also, FYI: Acid is literally light years ahead of anyone I've seen on Mplayer, so you might take a little more weight on his post than mine (since he pretty much is telling you how to fix the problem I am making sure you have ).



Cool

I am running RH9 and I check the package mananger under desktop x window system details and it shows a XFree86-xdm X Display Manager installed, along with the standard packages.
I also went to XFree86 site and downloaded the Xinstall.sh but when i get in gnome term and try ./Xinstall.sh it say permission denies. this is supposed to tell the download i need for my particular machine.
