please try to quote in a way that leaves the reader less confused as to
what is from you and what is from the previous mail.

Uh, I admit I think it was never tested with anything older than the 8.6

For your case, the situation is in short: due to ATI/AMDs incredibly
buggy and for some cases unoptimized OpenGL implementation you can not
just use any version, but you will need:
ATI drivers version 8.7 or 8.8
MPlayer version SVN r27216 or later
other combinations probably work badly or not at all (this is not
specific to Vista though, applies even to Linux).

As said rc2 is much too old for this to work. Unfortunately I know of
nobody who provides sufficiently new builds for Windows currently as the
whole MinGW toolchain seems to have serious issues currently.
