x11 video problems!


I got my laptop this Friday, kinda cool since I have never owned a laptop before, I installed Ubuntu on it, since I couldn't be bugged installing a more "complex" distro just now.

It has worked fine until now, wireless is working, sound, etc. Just one thing remain, when I play videos through Mplayer, they are only displayed in 3 colours ( black, dark green and purple ), which lowers my viewing exprience ( ), I know that my graphic card is an onboard Intel Corp. one with 128mb.

I've also been told to get hands of some X11 sources, cause I could find x11 or xv under "mplayer -vo help".

But I couldn't find the sources through apt-cache search, so yeah. If anyone got any suggestions, or questions towards my problem ( in case I mentioned something important ), please reply.

The only two packages I have installed are

Code:
mplayer-1.0-0.16.pre7.2.fc4
mplayer-fonts-1.1-3.0.rf
and I have the xv option for mplayer -vo. (Both of those packages are for Fedora Core 4). Which version of the packages are you using? Another place to search/post is on the Ubuntu forums themselves, http://www.ubuntuforums.org/ . I would use both LinuxQuestions and the Ubuntu forums; different people hang out on each.

Well, here is the name of the package;
Code:
MPlayer-1.0pre7try2
Should be the newest, as I downloaded not long ago, I used the source, and then compiled and installed through make.

Secondly, I already made a topic on ubuntuforums.org, but since I didn't receive any replies, I thought I'd come here ( and amazingly, you already replied! ).

This is interesting. Were you able to get any other video players to work properly (xine, for instance)?
