I managed to solve the problem by specifying my drivers explicitely with
-vo xvidix:radeon_vid.so (at least ist starts and plays the video)
Still, tv out doesn't work (tv screen is GREEN), while my monitor shows
the video more or less normally (although it's a bit ugly).
Oh well, guess I'm just going to use x11 and change resolution every
time I watch a movie, then...
