I think it's a video driver problem...


Im trying to get mplayer and tvtime running

I got both packages isntalled (the portage/emerge for tvtime is outdated and also broken (from my personal experience, so I compiled the latest ver. on there site). anyway....

I run mplayer, and the video window is ok till i move it (even 1px oveR) and then it redraws with a tile of little red X's, same goes for tvtime, I run it and the window is pink until i move it... and poof.. little red x's are tiled all over the thing.

What am I doing wrong? everything else seems to run just fine.

Im running a SiS651 + 962L video chipset (on a Shuttle SS51G barebones XPC).


Here is mplayers console output when trying to play a mpeg video:

Try the "xv" video output. You can see a list with
$ mplayer -vo help

Distributions are notorious for breaking mplayer when they package it. Try downloading and installing from the source from the homepage.
