I meant that if you run nvidia-settings from an xterm, it may be setting environment variables which would only exist in that terminal and you'd have to start VLC/mplayer/other from that same xterm to see the changes.

nvidia-settings -h says you'd use -l or --load-config-only to load the configuration from a .xinitrc file when you start X.
