I'm trying to understand why mplayer is giving me a blue screen lately
when it was working before. Below are the messages I get when I run from
the command line. I 'm sorry i don't have messages to compare it with
when It was working. I get audio but no images. 

I enjoy playing video clips that friends send me so I'd like to get this
working if I could.   I'd like some help debugging this.
