mplayer freezes on moving a window


I am running mplayer in fluxbox on debian. When I drag a window that is playing video around the desktop, it freezes the video. At first it happened with mpegs, I fixed that in preferences by enabling frame dropping. But it still freezes with xvid and divx videos. Are most mplayer users able to move video windows while playing?

I don't have any problems myself. What video output are you using? Have you tried any others?

I'm using the xv driver in mplayer. The only other one I found that works is x11, but that one doesn't allow the video to scale up to fullscreen.
