I had no problem in 13.37, but since I upgraded to 14.0 X86_64, mplayer refuses to go full screen with default configuration.
I'm using vmlinuz-generic-3.2.29.
[VO_XV] It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
[VO_XV] Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support and read
[VO_XV] See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers.
[VO_XV] Try -vo x11.
When I run xvinfo
X-Video Extension version 2.2
no adaptors present
The dmesg part regarding video card is:

With -vo xv option, there is no image.
With -vo x11 option, no fullscreen, cpu utilization at around 18%.
With -vo gl option, fullscreen, but cpu is going through the roof! There's also a message saying:
Your system is too SLOW to play this!
With -vo gl2, the same as gl
With -vo gl_nosw, there's no image.
With -vo sdl, there's an image, but can't do it full screen, cpu at around 20%.
So, it seems that something is broken.
After reading /usr/doc/MPlayer-20110624/html/en/xv.html and taking into account the output of xvinfo
My /var/log/Xorg.0.log doesn't seem to show any EE error.
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
So, where should I go from here? Is the problem regarding screens not found? Xorg configuration? What to do?
