Well no luck there, uninstalled MPlayer using ( make uninstall ). Downloaded the latest version ( MPlayer 0.90rc1 ), compiled it using ./configure --enable-xv and i'm still not getting an option for xv when I do the -vo help command. These are the options that ARE available:
Available video output drivers:
mga Matrox G200/G4x0/G550 overlay (/dev/mga_vid)
fbdev Framebuffer Device
null Null video output
pgm PGM file
md5 MD5 sum
mpegpes Mpeg-PES file
yuv4mpeg yuv4mpeg output for mjpegtools (to "stream.yuv")
vesa VESA VBE 2.0 video output
The only reason it shows mga ( Matrox ) was because the Matrox cards also use vidix and I was trying to see if I could use the mga option to work with the ATI Radeon, no luck there though. I am now getting the following errors when I try to view the same video:
open: No such device
vo_mga: Couldn't open /dev/mga_vid
fbdev: Can't open /dev/fb0: No such device
Not sure what the "open: No such device" line stands for, vo_mga is the Matrox cards, and fbdev is the "frame buffer device". As I said earlier, I can browse to /dev/fb0 and the file DOES exist, not sure why it says that the is no such device... also VIDIX should load and should be an option for playing videos, but when I use it as the documentation states it should be use I get the following error:
vosub_vidix: Couldn't find working VIDIX driver
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device!
When I compile MPlayer it does detect VIDIX, but it almost seems like VIDIX is not installing correctly? I looked to see if I could force vidix to install using a command when compiling, but there is no such command, there is only one for disabling vidix.
Well that's all the info I have right now. I have to go take care of some work. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
