The video driver is not likely to be the problem.
Try specifying the device directly (for example mplayer dvd://
-dvd-device /dev/acd0c). If you have both ata and atapicam enabled, try both
the acd device and the cd device (you may have to modify permissions first).
Have you by chance specified a cache in .mplayer/config, or hardframedrop? The
libmpeg2 decoder doesn't like most of the options - try to
rename .mplayer/config to something else to make sure you run with defaults.
If that still doesn't help, try editing /usr/local/share/mplayer/codecs.conf
and comment out this paragraph completely (prefix each line with a ";"):
info "MPEG 1 or 2 (libmpeg2)"
comment "with postprocessing"
