xv xvideo don't work but should


i am using slackware 9.1 and although the sis315pro video card i am using should work with XVideo it dont
dont work in xine , dont work in mplayer
xvinfo says :

Adaptor #0: "SIS 300/310/325 series Video Overlay"
number of ports: 1
port base: 56

...blah blah blah
indicating that it should work, it used to work the first time i installed slack9.1
then i reinstalled and it didn't, got new hd reinstalled on that and it still didnt
in /var/log/XFree86.0.log it says :
...

hmm, can't see anythign off really. does x11 output work? mplayer file.avi -vo x11. i'd guess it's a problem with file itself, as mplayer does say somethign along those lines.
