Try playing your file using mplayer -vo xvmc -vc ffmepg12mc ( or some of 
the other filters listed by 'mplayer -vc help')

Note that xvmc only works for surfaces (frames) up to 720x568 in 
size....Well it *does* work above that size, but something else is 
munged and the picture is overlaid and pixelated with a bright green 
image. Nobody seems to know what causes this.. At least, no-one has 
jumped forward with an answer.. Zhenyu has done great work on xvmc but 
this is NOT xvmc and I don't think he gets paid to play with this even 
though he does work for Intel!
