Hehe I got it working in console mode with Slackware 9.1... Though it was NTSC so it only became black & white (running via the video since the TV me and my pal got doesn't have any SCART). I did even once got mplayer to play a movie (in black & white of course) in console mode, I don't know how it worked and I've never got it working after that either...
What I did was that I tried to start X but it only became a black screen as it seemed to not support TV-out as default, so I shut X down with ctrl+alt+backspace and then run mplayer... Guess if I got suprised when it worked, I was just going to show my pal how to start a movie with mplayer in slackware console...
