Mplayer fails to run (gui)

I have installed Mplayer-1.0pre7 without any errors. I also installed fonts and a default skin.
When I run the mplayer (non gui) it works perfectly fine.
When I run gmplayer (gui) I get following ....

MPlayer 1.0pre7-3.3.2 (C) 2000-2005 MPlayer Team
CPU: Advanced Micro Devices Athlon MP/XP Thoroughbred (Family: 6, Stepping: 1)
Detected cache-line size is 64 bytes
CPUflags: MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 1 3DNow2: 1 SSE: 1 SSE2: 0
Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 3DNow 3DNowEx SSE

vo: X11 running at 800x600 with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0.0" => local display)

and that's it.. nothing happens, it just remains there!

Please help..

Mpg files from Hard drive.
The same runs fine in non gui when played with mplayer.

Here I am just running gmplayer, no file is specified as it has GUI interface.
Even if I set run with gmplayer in file type options for mpg, it does not run.

I have exactly the same problem.
The cpu usage reaches 100% until gmplyer is killed...
