Here's what I would do:

1. Download and install the latest drivers from nVidia.

2. Try Xine! ( http://xine.sourceforge.net )

download the drivers for nvdivia and install

enable gui when configure mplayer ( ./configure --enable-gui ) make; su; make install ldconfig

download one skin and run gmplayer
chose properties and in video chose drivers xv/x11

if u wan't enable gui run in console mplayer -vo xv

or can u see what drivers have now with
mplayer -vo help

(see help docs.........)
(sorry for error in my english )
