Connected laptop to Plasma TV shows computer display fine but doesn't show video when playing through any player

 I managed to get the s-video out on my laptop to work, so i can view
 my screen on the tv, but whenever I go to play a DivX video or any
 other video clip on the laptop, either in WMP or DivX player, the
 area where the video is supposed to be showing is black. The video
 plays on my monitor, but on the tv it's only black. However, if I
 play a quicktime file in quicktime, it will show up on the tv also.
 Any ideas?

This also happens when I use a monitor cable(RGB) to my plasma tv as well.
