I'm have just got MPlayer running after compilation, and I had some ASF 
files on my windows disk, and I knew that MPlayer supports this format, when 
I got to run it (from the command line) It gave no error messages and found 
the codecs for audio and video, but when it got to run I just hear the sound 
but I see a badly colored screen for the video, did I miss anything, here is 
the output generated by MPlayer before running the movie:
