Check which output driver addresses that port, for example
% mplayer -vo x11 test.avi
% mplayer -vo xv test.avi
% mplayer -vo gl test.avi
% mplayer -vo sdl test.avi
You can get a list of the available output drivers with
% mplayer -vo help
Then put the result, for example "vo=gl", in the ~/.mplayer/config
file. Note that direct rendering might be supported, and not
all output drivers support things like manual brightness control
