[MPlayer-users] Flicker Black Bars on videos

Hallo Again!

So, now I'm on the last version:

MPlayer SVN-r37257-4.8 (C) 2000-2014 MPlayer Team

I'm playing the movie with this cli:

mplayer -noass -fs -vo vdpau -vc ffmpeg12vdpau,ffh264vdpau <filename>

By default the subtitles are under the movie in the black bars. The movie AND the subtitles are 
shown correctly, but the black bars are flickering, showing the background behind (the xbmc menu).

What is different from previous mplayer version I was using?

Previous the subtitles are not shown, now yes. The rest (movie ok, but black bars flickers) still 
the same.

I've noticed the following:

Within XBMC, during playback, movie and subtitles are shown in a way they seems forced ontop. If I 
move the mouse (this happen on cli, outside from xbmc too), then the cursor disappear behind the 
movie and behind the subtitles (when shown). I think it has something with vdpau and framebuffer to 
do. Seems the black bars are not sent to "-vo vdpau" and so they are not ontop and are flickern 
between underlayer software (xbmc) and the the movie itself.

Any idea?
