I am using MPlayer 1.0pre8-Fedora-GS-4.1.1
Fedora Core 5.
ok, normally I have no issues with mplayer, but it seems that whenever I play a high definition quicktime file, it will open a window as if it is starting to play it, then the whole screen will go blank. I can't switch to another virtual terminal in Linux, nor can I reboot the machine with Control-Alt-Delete. I have to turn off the machine and turn it back on!
for example, if I go here
and do View Page Source, and find the link for the 720p trailer,
If I feed that URL to mplayer it has the effect I described. Same effect if I download the whole file as available on various web sites.
So...what's causing that, and is there any way I can fix it??? I normally have a Windows installation on this PC, but not right now as it has problems, so Free Software is my only option to play these files for now :)
