[MPlayer-users] MPlayer Blue Screen Problem

I meant the actual VIDEO encompassed in the window is blue.
I can move the window around it is always blue.
If I use -vo x11 or -vo gl2, it works fine.
It has something to do with the Xv video space.

I dont think your problem is related: you get a *blue* screen and have 
to restart X; I get a *black* screen and I just have to hit "F" twice to
