Question Help!! Video players not working

Hi, everyone. I've got a problem. Some time ago, I set up my Slack and everything was just fine. Some time after, I erased the boot loader because of partition movements, then I recovered my installation by setting LILO again (I booted with my Slack CD first). By that time, my PC had already another video card installed, so I set up again my video drivers for the x-sever, and started it.
i worked perfectly, but when i tried to watch a video, I discovered that none of the video players I have (Kaboodle, Noatun, Xine, XMMS) could play a video. They just show a blue screen for a second or less and they close. Can anybody tell me what can I do about this?

By the way, everytime I open Noatun, KDE soundserver crashes, but Noatun keeps playing audio normally, just some applications can't use sound anymore.

What kind of video card and driver are you using? Ignore the KDE soundserver crash for now, that tends to be pretty buggy anyway.

Let's try to deduce why you can't get a video display.
