I have one small problem though, I can play an avi file on true color with mplayer and this all works fine, but when I change my pc color settings (Windows 2000) from true color back to 256 colors, the video playback is very poor.  Yet I can still view it correctly with windows media player..  The video is of a graphic presentation, its a 3D fly thought of a process line.

The problem was that vo_directx did not support 256 color desktops. This
should be fixed now in CVS.
