Code: Select all
apt-get install mplayer

Then I tested it with a movie I have in the hard disk. However,

Why do you open mplayer from root?
OS: Debian Stretch / WM: Fluxbox

Code: Select all

Mismatching header version 57.56.100


Why do you have a missmatch? Please show the output of

Code: Select all
apt policy libavformat57


I suspect that deb-multimedia may be to blame here.
