I installed Mplayer in Gentoo. I can play music files just fine through MPlayer, but when I try to play a movie I get this error message:
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device
Also when I try to play anything via VLC it sounds like there is major reverb. I can see the movie file just fine, but the audio is messed up.
Any suggestions on how to fix both would be appreciated.
