It happens with xv and x11 output, it's not white as I wrote, overlay color 
key (color which is replaced by video) is filled with background window 
(konsole or wallpaper and so). I need to switch to fullscreen or just move 
the window. With xv the video area is filled with background, with x11 only 
the part of window that is not filled by video (like black horizontal borders 
that some movies have).
