mpg brightness problems

Hash: SHA1

In FC1 it was so easy to install totem and the codecs.
If I had a mpg that was a little dark, I could just open the video preferences 
for totem and turn up the brightness.

Now, in FC2, I have totem-0.99.11-1.1.fc2.dag, as well as 
mplayer-1.0-32_pre4.rhfc2.at, and xine-0.99.1-1.1.fc2.dag.

BTW, the black background and low contrast fonts in xine, are a real pain in 
the ass if you're 54 and wear glasses.  I can't read 'em at all.  Why in the 
world would someone make that the default?  Why not start out with something 
everyone can see, and give the option for the black background?

I can't increase the brightness in totem, nor in xine, and mplayer fails to 
start.  What can I do so that I can turn up the brightness in my mpg player?
