    Please go thru the "devices.html" in your source or mplayer.hq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/devices.html on the web.

    Don't have time. Try one of the followings-

    $mplayer -vo x11 yourvideofilename
    or
    $mplayer -vo sdl yourvideofilename
    or
    $mplayer -vo dga yourvideofilename

    .wmv files can be tricky in mplayer. you may nned to install other codecs such as the win32 codecs for mplayer. you can probably get all the codecs you need from here: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/dload.html, but if not, do a google search for the codecs you're looking for.

    do .mpeg files work?
