1) Probably not the best idea to run programs as root. Run mplayer
as a non-privileged user.

2) Verify the system-wide configuration file
(/etc/mplayer/input.conf) contains the values you expect. It defines
the video and sound output drivers. Preferably, you will copy the
system-wide file to your home directory (~/.mplayer/input.conf) and
set the preferences there.

3) Tell mplayer the name of the file you want to play. It is looking
for certain types of files (mpeg, asf, avi, etc.).
