If this is with 0.9.17 then you may have hit the bug I mentioned.

If you haven't applied a patch to matroxfb you only get 16MB with a 32MB
card. The patch is distributed with DirectFB. Note that the patch doesn't
fix the matroxfb console accel code to behave with 32MB so if your vyres
is too large you get console corruption.

Also the primary head takes up memory even though mplayer would be the
only DirectFB app running. If you don't need the primary head you should
specify some small mode in directfbrc to get more memory for crtc2.
