MPlayer error with new Radeon drivers

Hello, im a here.

I started having this problem with MPlayer playing video file when i installed new drivers.

It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support, and read Xv section of DOCS/video.html! See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11

When i had the normal videocard settings that came with Redhat 9, MPlayer worked fine, but as i installed fglrx drivers for my Radeon 9000 (because 3d programs/games didnt work right) MPlayer stopped working even though the 3d programs run fine now.

With '-vo x11' videos start playing but the problem is i cant scale them or watch them as full screen for example.

Anyone got solutions or suggestions to this problem?
