I'm sure this has been asked a hundred times on the list. But I
could'nt find much information on this anywhere so i decided to ask
here.I have a S3 Trio 64V2/DX graphics card with 4 MB of Video RAM. It
has a Cyrix PR233 processor with 96 MB RAM. Windows Media player
runs and plays all kinds of video files on my system but mplayer
hardly runs. I have tried all kinds of -vo options ... x11, sdl etc.
I have run mplayer on FreeBSD with X 4.2 and on Debian Woody with X
4.1 .. it's still the same. Why can't mplayer play movies on this
machine when windows media player plays the same eisily.Is there some kind of minimum requirement for playing mplayer.
