I'm using the latest svn snapshot of mplayer.
The XV video overlay adaptor is disabled on X.org 7.1 when Composite is enabled because it's incompatible with Composite. The blitter and texture adaptors don't have brightness or gamma controls. If you want to use the video overlay adaptor, you'll have to disable Composite.
