Error in gmplayer but not in mplayer

I've arch linux installed in my box, but I've a real rare problem when I try to play a movie with gmplayer, but this error doesn't occur when I play with mplayer, so I don't know whhere can I look to solve this problem, so this is the error I get with gmplayer..

93 audio & 211 video codecs
Linux RTC init error in ioctl (rtc_irqp_set 1024): Permission denied
Try adding "echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq" to your system startup scripts.

Playing video.avi.
AVI file format detected.
VIDEO: [XVID] 512x384 12bpp 25,000 fps 1656,9 kbps (202,3 kbyte/s)
Clip info:
Software: VirtualDubMod (build 2178/release)
Opening audio decoder: [mp3lib] MPEG layer-2, layer-3
AUDIO: 48000 Hz, 2 ch, s16le, 128,0 kbit/8,33% (ratio: 16000->192000)
Selected audio codec: [mp3] afm: mp3lib (mp3lib MPEG layer-2, layer-3)
It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support and read DOCS/HTML/en/video.html#xv!
See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
Any help would be appreciated.

mplayer and gmplayer can have a different video driver (-vo) by default.

The default driver for mplayer is in gui.conf, option is called: vo_driver = "gl2"
For mplayer it is in the config file, option is called: vo=gl2,gl,xv,x11

The drivers mentioned in the example could be different for you.
You can check which drivers work by forcing mplayer to use a specific driver:

mplayer -vo gl2 <some.moving.stuff>

Available drivers can be retrieved by issuing the following command:

mplayer -vo help

Hope this helps.
