[xubuntu-users] Video players all show black screen [SOLVED]

I wound up using Synaptic to uninstall mplayer, mencoder, vlc and
every video codec that I had, rebooted and then reinstalled mplayer,
mencoder and vlc.

Everything seems to be working properly at this point.

Of course, now I have to reinstall a few other things that went with
all the video decoders, but hey - I got my videos back.  I didn't keep
track of everything that disappeared, so which one was causing the
problem I don't know, but I won't make the mistake of just loading
video codecs because they are there....
