Is this trailer_final_1000_dl.mov?

That has resolution 1000x540, which is divisible by 16, and should be
fine. If your talking about a different version/resolution, then please
post the link.

You can try scaling the video to a "normal" dvd resolution, and see what
mplayer trailer_final_1000_dl.mov -vop scale=854:480

If the above line doesn't have any problems, then you probably have a
buggy xv driver or chipset. Otherwise, the problem could be somewhere
else, so if you send in a full bugreport (DOCS/bugreports.html) someone
here might be able to see what's wrong.
