I am using the 'nv' driver.

Using mplayer from the console does not produce an error. Of course,
all I get is the audio track. No error message is displayed.

So, if I use hal I lose the ability to view videos? That kind of sucks.
Obviously, someone must know about it so I assume submitting a bug
report would be a waste of time.
