which xf86 drivers do you use ??? the default or one from nvidia ???.
perhaps mplayer use some bugged feature from the drivers. ( that xine
simply emulate. )
use the 2960 which is really stable ; get it from nvidia, they have a
section for linux driver ( allways use the src and compil it by yourself
). don't forget the kernel module too, ( and for newbie read the doc
because install could be tricky ; ask in a diff list... )
