Just so you know, the developers here usually like to see the full
output of mplayer, so they know what video driver you're using (for
one thing), and what processor you have. So, would you mind appending
that to your reply?

Which video card, and which mplayer video driver are you using? If
you're using the "x11" driver, you may have just run out of shared
memory. (Examine the output of "ipcs -M; ipcs -mob"). The "xv" driver
is a better choice, if XFree86 supports it for your video card, and if
it works. (Try "xvinfo"). In any case, do you really have to reboot,
or does just restarting the X server fix it?
