The xover issue you had is only a problem when starting the video over
SSH.  It works just fine with xover when started from the terminal on
the Neo.

Actually, I think it works better.  What that option seems to do is
force the video to the front (ie over everything else).  Without that
option, I can't get the mplayer window to accept input(clicks).  They
pass right through and hit whatever was on the screen before I ran
your script.
