Codecs

Maybe you just haven't installed the needed codecs, for example divx, mpeg2 or others. I know this problem just because of missing codecs.
But try to find out more by having a look at the log-file, I think mplayer will write on....

ok, it says you're trying to use fbdev, which (by divine inspriartion) tells me that you don't have the XFree86-devel package installed on your system. if you did then MPlayer would have access to the XWindows based output's which is what you are expecting. install that package, reconfigure, and make and install again. check the output of configure and you should see somethign like
Code:
Checking for X11.......... yes
currently that will be saying no due to that package not being found.

i think the problem are:

Reading config file /usr/local/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf: No such file or directory

Reading /root/.mplayer/codecs.conf: can't open '/root/.mplayer/codecs.conf': No
such file or directory

Can't open input config file /root/.mplayer/input.conf : No such file or directory

Can't open input config file /usr/local/etc/mplayer/input.conf : No such file or directory


but how to fix it?

also you don't appear to be running a framebuffer... you're missing on some cool bootup logo's and other pretty things... but that's irrelevant here...

i just happen to know that that is the last resort when it can't find any other video output to use. you can also see later on that it says "vo [null]" so it's actually given up trying to show the video by that stage.

Those pretty things are a penguin at boot time, along with other fancies that come with framebuffering. The coolest of which, tux at boot time..



Cool
