Hi Reimar thank you for your reply,
that are the drivers compiled on my system (output from mplayer -vo
x11 X11 ( XImage/Shm )
xover General X11 driver for overlay capable video output
gl X11 (OpenGL)
gl2 X11 (OpenGL) - multiple textures version
dga DGA ( Direct Graphic Access V2.0 )
sdl SDL YUV/RGB/BGR renderer (SDL v1.1.7+ only!)
fbdev Framebuffer Device
fbdev2 Framebuffer Device
png PNG file
jpeg JPEG file
gif89a animated GIF output
null Null video output
pgm PGM file
md5 MD5 sum
mpegpes Mpeg-PES file
yuv4mpeg yuv4mpeg output for mjpegtools (to "stream.yuv")
vesa VESA VBE 2.0 video output
xvidix X11 (VIDIX)
cvidix console VIDIX
tga Targa output
Non of these worked as a normal user (I have not tryed png, jpeg, gif...
becouse I am interested in playing the video now). As root only vesa
worked! That is something, but I still don`t know why cvidix doesn`t
