Default Re: [Bug] X-server hangs when switch VDPAU video to fullscreen

This also happened to me and this is what i found:

KDE: desktop effects enabled BUT the option to disable them while on fullscreen is enabled by default. Is THIS change of effects enabled/disabled what made mplayer crash and freeze all the X server. When i disabled this option the problem was gone.

Yesterday i changed mplayer for mplayer2 and they have done a really good job because i've already enabled that option and i'm yet to see another crash.

So, for me,

solution 1: disable option to disable desktop effects on fullscreen windows
Solution 2: use mplayer2 instead of mplayer

I hope this help someone.
