it's not the display....

ok. i rebuild the mplayer for 4th time... now - after moving codecs to the
right place and other things like fonts - i see the mplayer window open
BUT it's frozen - i can hear the audio but the image is frozen...

i think i mentioned i'm on freeBSD 5.0 system. i guess i should mention
that all this is happening on a t20 ibm laptop where i can not really start
changing video and audio cards to see which driver works....
