I know... i'll fix it once, but not now.

I don't understant this...
What 'cache' stuff you're talking about? There is only one cache code
in mplayer, for VCD sector reading, but it's disabled.

What's the relation between pgm driver and xv???
pgm is a file format (one pic / frame), while Xv is an X4 extension...

.pgm (and md5sum) output drivers are broken, because draw_slice() isn't
yet implement in them. mpeg-based codecs uses draw_slice(), so playing
mpeg with -vo pgm will result empty (black) images.
divx and other w32 codecs should work with -vo pgm or -vo md5, because
it uses draw_frame(), it's implemented there.
