MPlayer ?!?

I ran into the following problem:

VDec: vo config request - 1280 x 720 (preferred colorspace: Planar YV12)
VDec: using Planar YV12 as output csp (no 0)
Movie-Aspect is 1.78:1 - prescaling to correct movie aspect.
VO: [xv] 1280x720 => 1280x720 Planar YV12
aspect: Warning: no suitable new res found!
X11 error: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)?,?% 0 0

MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: vo_check_events
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.
I found this:
MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module vo_check_events or this error
"X11 error: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)" using an intel card
  • add Option "LinearAlloc" "8192" to xorg.conf and restart X
I added the line Option "LinearAlloc" "8192" to /etc/X11/xorg.conf in the Device section, restarted X (ctrl+alt+backspace) and voila, it works.

For some reasons after the latest ubuntu update xrandr just doesn't want to work. I don't know exactly why, but adding the following line to /etc/X11/xorg.conf solved the problem. Idea is from here.
Section "Device"
Identifier "Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Inte$
Driver "i810"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
Option "RandRRotation" "true"
