Hello!
 
If you are using M-Player for your Ubuntu system:
Open M-Player
Right click on the main window     
Click on preferences
Click OK on "Please remember that you need to restart playback for some options to take effect".
Click on the video Tab
Different files such as .flv will work on a specific driver:
(.flv will work on x11 and so forth)
 
type 'mplayer -vo help' on the terminal to get a list of valid video output devices. Specify them manually using 'mplayer -vo <device> <file>'. 
 
In order to avoid typing the full command everytime, just edit the config file 
gedit $HOME/.mplayer/config
 
add this as another line:
vo=xv
 
Have fun with your MPlayer!
 
 
Hope this helps!
