What VO method are you using? Is gmplayer using the same VO?

This sounds like an issue which I noticed when first switching to -vo
vdpau, and it turned out to be a problem with the -fstype being used. I
narrowed it down to the 'fullscreen' fstype, and playing with '-fstype
-fullscreen' or '-fstype none' made it work.
