I'm having an issue with Fedora and mplayer.
When I start (g)mplayer, my whole screen goes black for a second, comes back on and everything is fine. When I close the application, the whole screen goes black again for a second and comes back on again.
When I change a video option in the preferences of mplayer the problem temporary disappears, but after a while it comes back again.
It looks like the screen (or X) needs to initialise itself when I'm starting, or closing, mplayer. Video's play fine, it's just starting at closing the application that causes a minor problem.
Anyone experiencing something similar? I'm quite puzzled, as the problem goes away for a short period of time when I change a video option in mplayer...
