Configure already detects SDL-version so that should be too hard to
implement, but someone else should do that, I have no clue from
configure stuff :(

But I only mentioned that the video cut half way through could be caused
by the video driver, so he should test another one and see if it
works, because I had the same probelm once with dga output I think.
Btw. sdl output is very usable for me, I have some bug report from
Gabucino regarding libaa output not working but I hadn't got time yet
to look into it (holidays in one week finally =).
It would be nice if more users used sdl so I could get some bug
reports (not many users will use it if its stated highly experimental

Btw2. most vidout drivers don't cope correctly with keystroke
handlings as described in mplayer README, in most cases ESC kills the
programm instead of changing from fullscreen/windowed, I think I'll
try fixing that if I get some time. (I'm testing with dga, fsdga, x11,
xv and sdl output).
