How did you do the install? Did you download and install the codecs? if so, which ones did you leave out?

Hmmm - I am leaning towards you missing out a codec, but I would count mpg as pretty essential! Problem for me is that I grabbed all codecs and installed them.

When you run mplayer, what commands do you input? Can you post the output mplayer gives in the console?

You will need to download and install fonts - in one of the above messages, MPlayer is looking for fonts.

What happens if you run it as a normal user?

Do you have the Nvidia drivers loaded or are you using the inbuilt ones?

At the moment those are the only things which spring to mind. In fact, font message and video drivers aside, you are getting the same messages I get - and mine works with mpgs.
