No, you didn't.
MPlayer 0.90rc5-3.2.2 (C) 2000-2003 Arpad Gereoffy (see DOCS)

The official RPMs have a version string similar to this:
MPlayer 0.90-RPM-x.x (C) 2000-2003 Arpad Gereoffy (see DOCS)

I don't think it is very important in this case, though.

Well, I'm using GeForce 256 with the same nVidia driver version as you and
have no trouble with Xv at all. Strange that you're the only one to report
a problem with playing a movie with valid multiple of 16 dimensions via Xv.

And how come your gcc version string says RedHat even though you say you're
using Mandrake?

Linux: Mandrake 8.0 but updated somewhat
XFree86 Version 4.2.1 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 3 September 2002
       	If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
       	newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
       	reporting problems.  (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)

gcc version 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)

Is Mandrake's gcc just taken from RH or have you installed RH's version?
