Hi, if I'm not wrong, your MPlayer try to display on the framebuffer. In others
words, on a TTY window. I guess it's not what you want. I may be one of the
last person on earth doing this on my old "General dynamics Itronix GObook"(and
I'm amazed that it works not so bad!
A good maner to show people how many things we can do in a Linux console and
how much I can be nerdy).
You should try to put options to force it to use one the X-window based display
mode, and if it doesn't work, it should give you a clue about what is
missing(probably an X video driver or a MPlayer module)
Sincerely, Stephane Ascoet
