[MPlayer-users] divx cropped and duplicated

whenever i try to play a dixv/avi file (actually, only tried with
widescreen movies) the screen is cropped on left and right sides, and
replaced with a "mirror" of the movie playing; ie, the screen is split in
two, both halves playing the centre part of the screen. the problem is
resolved when i use the -vo x11 switch, but unfortunately i can't rescale
the movie with that video output.

i had the exact same problem with a previous release of mplayer, but it
"fixed itself" after i upgraded to mplayer0.90rc1 (or the ver before).

installed software and other specs:
acer travelmate 210txr laptop
 -Trident CyberBlade/DSTN/Ai (us xfree86's generic trident cyberblade drv)
xfree86 4.2.1 (mandrake 9.0 rpm)
mplayer0.90rc4 with the latest codecs (both the w32 & win32 codecs)

i tried compiling mplayer with all 3 possible combinatioins of the above
codecs, i also tried dixv4linux, which didn't do me any good (didn't get
it working). and i've tried various -vc options. i've previously used
xfree86 3.x.x ver, but it coudln't detect any 'valid screen modes' upon
installing mandrake9.0 - but xfree864.2.1 works w/o complaint.

anyone out there who'd like to point me in the right direction?

thnx in advance,
