    videos not playing

    Hi i recently installed ubuntu 8.04 and I love it. I have compiz fusion working nicely and everything is fine except for one thing. When ever i try to play a video in any format (.avi .mpg) all i see is a black screen where the video should be. In totem I have installed the codecs needed, but the player i regularly use, vlc also renders the same problem. In vlc however I can hear the sound. I have an compaq nc6000 laptop with a 1.9ghz processor and a ati radeon 9600 video card. Please help! I also have 2 monitors in use they are cloned. Also when i try metacity --replace the videos play fine which leads me to believe it has to do with my desktop effects.
