Video obscuring drop down menu


On any video I play, the picture is on top of the drop down menus for the player so they can't be seen- they drop down and work and can see the parts that are to the sides of the video picture. This happens on every video player I have tried -Movie player, GNOME MPlayer, VLC.

Running Mint 9 on an Elonex webbook. Completely new to Linux so may be missing something obvious.

The image that shows the problem had to be taken with a camera as using the screen capture looked as though the video picture wasn't even there (image also attached). This may help give insight into the problem.
