[MPlayer-users] Bugreport

I've found following bugs:

1. In gmplayer: when "right" click on Video Window and choose something
from menu which opens new window, the new window appears but it's
immediately coverd by the video window (it seem like it has keep on
bottom flag set). This is reproducible until I open some window using
middle button, through graphic menu. After this the right button works
withou any problems.

2. I'm not able to use dmix plugin with Alsa Output:

mplayer -ao alsa9:mixovani some.avi	(defined in my .asoundrc)

AF_pre: af format: 2 bps, 2 ch, 48000 hz, little endian signed int 
AF_pre: 48000Hz 2ch Signed 16-bit (Little-Endian)
alsa-init: testing and bugreports are welcome.
alsa-init: requested format: 48000 Hz, 2 channels, Signed 16-bit
alsa-init: soundcard set to mixovani
alsa-init: unable to set periodsize: Invalid argument
Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound.

mplayer -ao alsa9:dmix some.avi		(the same problem)		
mplayer -ao alsa9:plug:dmix some.avi	(pcm device plug dones't exists)

3. (Not sure if it's bug) I have quite slow machine (PII-266), but I can
still play many videos using mplayer without gui. When I run gmplayer
and the control panel (or playbar) is visible (either in nonfulscreen or
fullscreen), then I can see one frame per five two or some impressionist
pictures with hard frame drop. When control panel isn't visible the
speed of playing is probably nearly the same as with plain mplayer.
