Try using a specified -vo from the cli,

Ex.
mplayer -vo x11 /path/to/filename
mplayer -vo xv /path/to/filename
mplayer -vo gl2 /path/to/filename

If using a mplayer gui you'll find setting in the preferences ( gnome-mplayer is better than the default gmplayer

If a -vo that works is found can be set for cli mplayer in ~/.mplayer/config as such

[default]
# Write your default config options here!
vo=x11

Can you help with this problem?
