          **** Your system is too SLOW to play this!  ****
          ************************************************

Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
- Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
  - Try -ao sdl or use the OSS emulation of ALSA.
  - Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
- Slow video output
  - Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
- Slow CPU
  - Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the lavdopts,
    e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
- Broken file
  - Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
- Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
  - Try -cache 8192.
- Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
  - Try -nocache.
Read DOCS/HTML/en/video.html for tuning/speedup tips.
If none of this helps you, read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.

in .mplayer/config i put ao=alsa to be default

before updating slackware-current everything worked well with the same version

it happens on every file i want to play, how can i troubleshoot it?
i tried
-vo xv and x11 same problem

how can i troubleshoot what caused the problem

Are you using a proprietary video driver? If so, have you reinstalled
it since you updated X.Org?

please give me a hint, how to do so if i have intel 82865g onboard

i never expirienced such a problem yet

thanks

If you installed a proprietary driver, you would know it.
If you did not, then you don't need to reinstall it.

However, the Intel video drivers in the kernel have been
receiving a lot of bad press for some time now.

Sorry, mate, but I used Nvidia and don't know more about it.

There's much new about X.Org, and Google is your friend.

That particular video card, or any onboard Intel is just going to be slow. They are really crappy cards. I used to have an Intel 810 and any old nvidia card is miles ahead of the intel one.

What did you upgrade that made it suddenly run slower? Or did you just try to recently play bigger files? Perhaps try to compile your own mplayer without the runtime cpu-detection or try vlc.

You usually get that message from mplayer if your system is cpu constrained. Have you fired up 'top' and checked for any run-away (high cpu) processes?

i using the same mplayer with the same files that worked perfect before slackware-current txz upgrades.all i did was upgradepkg --install-new *.txz, but upgrading before that i upgraded only tgz files at that time with latest kernel was 2.6.29.2 but now when upgraded txz (i wanted to upgrade kde from 4.2.2 to 4.2.4 and done txz upgrade and this is when mplayer started to give me problems

regarding top - mplayer uses 14% cpu and its on top i have 3 ghz single core 2gb ram

i also tried rworkman intel drivers, to install but same problem, no joy
