The maintainer of the package in stable is no longer with blastwave. 
I've been working on an updated package over the past few weeks however, 
and I'm pretty close to being happy with my mplayer-rc1 revision of mplayer.

I'm not a mplayer developer, so I'm probably not much help here, but 
you're more then welcome to try my work-in-progress-packages. In fact, 
I'd appreciate the help in testing :)

Quite right, where possible at least.

Pass. I can tell you this much; I use mplayer a lot, and I use it with 
Xv on nevada 65.
If your issue is in fact a Nevada/X11 issue, my mplayer package isn't 
going to be any better, sorry.
