Blue screen of mplayer


Whenever i try to play a video file with mplayer i get a blue screen but can hear the sound correctly.

=> I have tried trailers from the quicktime site and a video cd.
=> I have tried a vcd with the -vcd option as discussed in other threads and in the documentation.
=> I have tried the command line version and now downloaded kmplayer as a frontend.

What should i do? Thanks in advance!

:)

use a different video output, e.g. -vo x11, -vo xv.....

Thanks (again!) acid! It works.
I didn't know about the gmplayer frontend initially and installed kmplayer. Kmplayer is nice and integrates well with kde, including playing quicktime in the browser itself.

But there is one promblem. -zoom works from the command line and the actual picture resizes to the window size or fullscreen(f). But there is nothing similar in Kmplayer except for a 50/100/150% zoom.

(Should i post this as a separate thread?)

no, just don't use kmplayer..... it's so so so much quicker to go directly from a console....
