Well, there may be a way around it by compiling mplayer/xine as 32 bit apps. 
I've something similar for flash on 64bit. Basically, firefox has to be 
compiled as 32 bit. I have no idea if this will work, but frankly it's far 
too much like hard work for my tastes.

The nVidia drivers might be a version thing. I'm using the 7667 set, and I've 
heard somewhere that they don't work, but that might have been a 32/64 bit 
issue too.
