Thank you, but it still doesn't work correctly :/

if i ommit the driver=v4l, dummy driver is used instead of the good one, and a green
screen is showed.

Using redhat 9, Do you think this is an mplayer problem? Or a rivatv module problem?
xawtv appears to work, but produces a lot of debug msgs in dmesg:
rivatv: stopping overlay
rivatv: stopping video capture
rivatv: starting video capture
rivatv: starting overlay: 384x288 at (249,389)
rivatv: overlay colour key has been: 000101FE
rivatv: overlay colour key is: 00FF00FF
rivatv: stopping overlay
rivatv: stopping video capture
rivatv: VIDIOCSPICT: BRI=32768 HUE=32768 COL=32768 CON=32768 WHI=32768 DEP=32 PAL=5
rivatv: VIDIOCSWIN: 384x288 @ (0,0) (key: 0x00000000)
I should check the available compile options for that module ;)
