Unfortunately I get "no video" with those. The good news is that the 
ancient 1.2 version of mplayer (with its snapshot of ffmpeg) works 
without any problems.

I've always used mplayer because the developers have worked hard to make 
sure it uses the least amount of CPU and it has always been optimized 
for the hardware which I've purchased. I don't think it's unreasonable 
to want to use hardware acceleration if it's available.
