MPlayer full screen


Finally managed to get mplayer working - everything fine. Connected to Red Hat Network and did auto-update of a load of video drivers. Now when i choose full screen mode, the image doesn't scale to fill the screen like it did before, but just puts out the same size feed with the rest of the screen blanked out. Everything else in mplayer works fine. Have tried various drivers in mplayer.conf, but the only one that works at all is v0=x11.

add -zoom if you insist on using x11 output, but you really would do well to try -vo xv again.

Thanks very much, Chris. -zoom worked fine. I tried -vo xv again, but I get an error message which I am becoming very accustomed to......

Error opening/initializing selected video_out (-vo) device.

If my memory serves me correctly, I was using xv before I downloaded the video updates from Red Hat, but now only x11 seems to work. Is this likely to be something in the XF86Config file? I did update that manually during the install of an updated ati video driver from linux-laptop.org, but have updated the kernel and video files since. After the update, my system had reset itself to US keyboard layout, which I managed to fix, so I suppose there could well have been other changes....

If i'm on the right track, I'm starting to get a little out of my depth!!

Talking

I had this *SAME* problem !
I compiled mplayer from source, and still had the problem..
so i said to hell with it and apt-get install mplayer

wow -- magically everything worked..
I'll send the script tho to snag ALL the codecs and install them for you..
Gotta get back to the house to do that, but I will post it. :P

Finally sorted it - just needed to update the video drivers again after I upgraded the kernel. I Got them from http://gatos.sourceforge.net if anybody else has a similar problem....

I now can run gmplayer -vo xv and don't need to use the x11 driver.
