Itsty Bitsy Mplayer issue


This might be an easy one to answer, but I've been looking for the anwer on the internet and in man pages for about 2 hours and came up with nothin.

In RH 7.3 when I installed GMplayer (Mplayer....whatever) it played in fullscreen no problems. Now it plays fullscreen in RH 9....but the panel shows...it's annoying.....How do I get it to go fullscreen and play on top of the panel?

I use red hat 9 also and use mplayer and I am not sure what you mean, mine goes full screen with no problems.
If you are talking about the player console (small area like a remote control, you can usually just click on the desktop and it goes away)

is this not a gnome issue rather than mplayer? no "always on top" option somewhere? there are some X layer options for mplayer if you look through the manpage, but afaik they were only there as a quick hack for icewm.

I'm running RH 9. How would I make the windows float on top of the panel?

are you sure your making it full screen, or are you clicking the maximize button...i know in mplayer if you hit the maximize button you will see the panel...you have to right click the movie to get a menu and click fullscreen, or you can use the keyboard shortcut "f"...if that is already what you are doing then i dont' know what to tell ya....but from what your saying it sounds like your hitting the maximize button in the upper right corner...
