    Yup, looks like the xv in a window problem that mplayer is
    having.. Set you vo to x11 in mplayerplug-in and that should
    fix the problem for now. Either that or try a newer mplayer.
    I have opened an issue on the mplayer mailing list, but so
    far no response.

    Sorry to say, but this does not help the problem at all.
    :^( I am using the latest mplayer release

    [noky@papa ~]$ mplayer --version
    MPlayer 1.0pre8-rpm.livna.org-4.1.1 (C) 2000-2006 MPlayer Team

    Please set the vo in mplayerplug-in.conf to x11 and re-run
    the tests.

    echo "vo=x11" >> ~/.mplayer/mplayerplug-in.conf

    Sorry for the delay. Yes, your workaround fixes the
    problem, so I changed the resolution to "works for me". I
    had changed my .mplayer/config file at first, but then I
    realized this did not affect the plugin. So, I changed
    .mplayer/mplayerplug-in.conf and this did the trick. Sorry,
    I did not read your original post thoroughly enough; you did
    tell me the correct config file to change.

    So, if this is an mplayer bug, is there a reference to the
    bug id so I can follow it in mplayer's bug tracking system?

    Thanks so much for all your hard work on this plugin!

    There is no tracking bug for mplayer (I don't think they use
    a bug tracker). I have submitted a bug to the devel mailing
    list, but the email was ignored. So I would guess that no
    one at the mplayer project is interested in fixing it.

    I'm going to close this since it is a config issue.
