SIS 650 and Mplayer problem


I am having an issue when I try to run an mpg file with mplayer. I get the following error:

vo: X11 running at 1024x768 with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0.0" => local display)
It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support and read DOCS/HTML/en/devices.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.

When I run xvinfo I get:
X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
no adaptors present

Can anyone help? I'm not sure what to do next.

Yeah, the video output xv isn't available to you... its the SIS card. I haven't got one of these, but I swear that xv support in their XFree driver... Check your /etc/X11/xorg.conf or XFree86.conf to see if you've got the "sis" driver listed under your card or "vesa"

For now... you can use the output -vo X11, albeit that's much slower. Or... if you invoke mplayer as root and have framebuffering working: -vo vesa (albeit vesa might scramble the X server a little when it switches back).

mplayer -vo help

Will list everything you have compiled, although ignore the mga and xmga and easily ignore the gl outputs... all stuff you haven't got or will maybe hang the machine.
