If looking too long at your screen is tiresome for your eyes and you think it’s linked to its brightness then you can lower it this way :

In order to know what’s the output device, first type :

xrandr --current --verbose

I get the following :
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 8192 x 8192
DVI-0 connected 1280×1024+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 380mm x 305mm

And further down :
Brightness: 1

Test what brightness you consider best for your eyes :

xrandr --output DVI-0 --brightness 0.88

When you are ready, you can add the line to your ~/.xinitrc. In doing so the right brightness will be loaded with your startx and you won’t have to repeat the operation each time.

If by any chance your video card is ATI then you may have come across this message in mplayer :

[VO_XV] It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
[VO_XV] Run ‘xvinfo’ to verify its Xv support and read
[VO_XV] DOCS/HTML/en/video.html#xv!
[VO_XV] See ‘mplayer -vo help’ for other (non-xv) video out drivers.
[VO_XV] Try -vo x11.
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

You need to reboot after the following :
apt-get install firmware-linux firmware-linux-nonfree

It seems the kernel 2.6.32-5 and xorg 1:7.5+6 require the ATI/radeon firmware to work the xv video output right…
