I second this, have the same issue. :-( I don't exactly know what is the 
problem, but suspect that ATI has a pos binary driver yet again...

<rant>
I should have purchased some nVidia card, their binary driver usually Just 
Works... And they do not bragg about supporting open source, as those ATI 
hypocrits... :-<
</rant>

Anyway, until the issue is settled, you can try a workaround if your processor 
is fast enough --- it works for me:

mplayer -vo x11 -zoom -fs movie.avi

HTH, :-)
