Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
