Video Problems After Codec Install

Hi everyone,

I installed the mplayer codecs package and after that when i open video any file with any multimedia program (Xine etc.) i just get a blue screen...
but..if i open the same file twice (open it and leave it opened and playing and re-open it with another instance) the file plays without any problem !
I can hear the sound though
Any hel is appriciated

Reboot. XV gets hosed sometimes. Then check if the blue screen persists.
