I got lost in LQ cache-loop for awhile there, but did get the whole file onto pastebin, as my inept link may indicate.

In reply to your question about higher res certainty, I only know that this machine can show mp4s from my camera. How it has done it, and why it doesnt, I don't know.

My stills generally come out at 2048xwhatever, and yet the screen shows whole image. I can reduce them by viewer mag tool twice before they're visibly not filling screen.

I thought raising the res. would make vid image smaller.

Not even sure this is true.

maybe it's nothing to do with screen resolution...
It's certainly one of the most elusive subjects I've tried to get a grip on, and no-one else seems to have experienced it in history of internet, according to my research skills lol, so I'm pretty pleased with any attempts at help.

The symptom is simple enough:
Replay of an mp4 of a kid on a swing will consist of an interesting study of a hinge and possibly an arm and a bit of tree, full screen.
I figure it's about a quarter of the image.

Uhhh... I can pretty much assure you that your laptop does not support 2048 x anything as a resolution :-) If 2048 x something images were being completely displayed previously, then they were definitely being scaled down.

Yuh, I can believe that easily, but er..I'm not fixated on increasing resolution as such, only that I thought it maybe the way I can watch my videos. Maybe MP Classic or something in Wine is my next thing.
I've tried mplayer, sm player,kodeine, helix, realplaer,Gnome mplayer, movie player, vlc, even downloaded Moovida Media Centre ( which is lovely to look at and navigate)
but but but I just want to watch my clips so I can edit and put something together and there's no icon here for being at wit's end boohoo.
Some of them work, some don't, in different players. I'm operating with too many, too many variables.

I wonder if you could suggest one that I could stick with and try everything to make it work, maaybe smplayer latest? I have it.

Ah, yes they were showing properly, so how do I get them to be 'scaled down'?, since they're obviously not now, and my movies I find by camera menu ARE shot in 2048x 1500 or so.
