Please do asa follows;

# mplaer -v foo.bar

You will get the information about -vo.

Maybey, video driver don't match your environment.
Then, execute like this;

$ mplayer -vo help

This cpmmand displayes all the video drivers.
Then, try as follows;

$ mplayer -vo foo <video.file>

With this, you will find the proper video driver.

HTH,
