Whoo! I have the same problem _except_ that I get tilted display
only if the movie frame size is not multiple of _8_. That is, common
sizes 320x240 and 352x288 work but my web cam has 356x292 window
which causes a tilted window (both mplayer,motv and xawtv) unless
I force it to a multiple of 8.

Hmm... works for me IIRC. Althought I don't have any video that big at
handy (VideoCDs are only 352x288).

What made it interesting to me is that I have a laptop (Acer Travelmate
332T) with also Trident Cyber 9525:

(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) Trident Cyber 9525/DVD rev 73, Mem @ 0x80800000/22,

Make sure you have the latest XFree86 drivers; I had serious problems with
4.1 (didn't restore videomode after suspend or switch to text console).
I'm currently using Debian's xserver-xfree86 version: 4.2.1-3.
