[MPlayer-users] MPlayer Blue Screen Problem

I've also had this problem, but not with gmplayer, with mplayer
sometimes if you play a lot of movies over and over or play two movies
with the -vo Xv option, I also get a "blue" screen and audio, but no

What is interesting is, if I use -vo X11 or -vo gl2, it plays fine, any

The only way to fix it that I have found is to reboot, restarting X
would probably also work however.

Tried that yesterday, it does not change anything.

The black screen appears only in the following scenario:

* start gmplayer with 3 movies as argument

* go full screen, then *dont touch anything*

* after 1st movie change, remote disappears (or does it go 'under'?)

* after 2nd movie change, blackout.

But you confirm that the remote disappears with the CVS version too?
