I made the offending change to MPlayer and AFAICT the app should
check the things out it needs.
If this wasn't the case i need to make modifications to remember
all changes and set them back to previous state before exit. But
this seems inconvinient and especially unsuseful as the app rarely
could make any assumptions about the Xv settings when starting up.
