for 1) does the user has the rights to /dev/dsp ? (ls -la /dev/dsp,
check the rights to read&write), or maybe another daemon is accessing
the soundcard, like esd, and you have no oss channel left, or something?
First check the rights, then try to play with different audio outputs:
mplayer -ao help to get the list, try oss, sdl, ...?
2) if it is a 4:3 movie, try with -aspect 4:3, or maybe when you are
going fullscreen, the video output mode doesn't support it fully, so you
also can try different outputs: -vo help to get the list (try xv, sdl,
dga, ...), or maybe with -zoom etc
a last thing: man mplayer
i know it's long to read, but it's clearly worth it, it'll learn you
about many other options ;)
