This smells like poor encoding/decoding libs (I can't say for sure, but it's the first thing that comes to mind based on experience). Do you:

- have a newer mplayer installed from FreshRPMS? (or maybe RF or ATrpms)

- have the "win32" DLL files unzipped to /usr/lib/win32/ on your machine?
direct x86 snag:

As we all know, video encoding/decoding w/linux can be sort of hit or miss depending on your source; on my laptop I have the above two in place which does't produce any bad videos (most of the time, of course there are exceptions) and actually they're quite good.

Feel free to upload a smaller mp4 (if legal) that's giving you trouble and I'll give it a whirl, see what happens on my end.
