Unhappy Problem with mplayer for Red hat 9(modify)

I have everything pretty much working in (1152x864 screen size, with Nvidia Riva TNT 2 Model 64, 32 Mb VGA card etc.), except when I play video files, they are not played full screen. Instead, they are played in a small window that is centered in the middle of the monitor. When I play file formats, which support to mplayer-0.90-fr2.i386 I cannot view it in full screen mode. I tried by pressing F but it still the same. But when I –zoom it and play it gets in to full screen mode but there is a problem with that too after playing voice plays 1stly and then video moves. I tried mplayer filename –vm –fs but it didn’t work on. And as the video driver only x11 (Ximage/Shm) is working as you guys said in my computer XV video out out is not working it gives this error “Error opening/initionalzing the selected video_out(-vo) driver no problem with the sound i have only problem with the that i cannot view as full screen in normal way
But as I said when I tried the –zoom it gives this problem as well

My system Specification
Pentium 4 1.6MHz processor
Nvidia Riva TNT 2 Model 64 32 MB VGA card
Creative Live sound card
17' SAMSUNG monitor
Intel original motherboard

Your system is too SLOW to play this!

Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
- Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
- Try -ao sdl or use ALSA 0.5 or the OSS emulation of ALSA 0.9.
- Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
- Slow video output
- Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
- Slow CPU
- Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try -hardframedrop.
- Broken file
- Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
- Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
- Try -cache 8192.
- Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
- Try -nocache.
Read DOCS/video.html and DOCS/sound.html for tuning/speedup tips.
If none of this helps you, read DOCS/bugreports.html.

How can I over come with this?
How can i change it in to -autosync 30 ?
How can i make XV -out put works ?

I install the rpm file

Please let me know by email me to
Or send me the link

thanks guys who reply please help me to solve this problem
