can't play anything on mplayer!!

wassup people!!

I've downloaded the rpms for mplayer but can't seem to get it to play. Everytime I use mplayer to play a vob file which is supported by it, cache starts to get filled but only like 0.02% gets filled and then the message 'lmlm4 stream not found'. Can anyone shed some light on this!!

My specs:
Dell Inspiron 500m laptop
256mb ram
