Read everywhere that mplayer can play in console. Just want to get things really straight, by console, does everybody mean linux without going into X? So is it basically like the DOS of PC?
I am currently using ATI Rage XL AGP video card. I've tried and tried, but nothing worked. I've even used TNT2 and GeForce 2 MX but no dice. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
I compiled mplayer with vesa option on, dga on. The command I issued is mplayer -vo vesa filename.avi but at the end of the output, there is always the "killed" word. It also says -vo device not found or something like that. When trying to show the log file here, the killed word is never displayed in the last line of the log file.
Hopefully that's not the case. I am really looking forward to seeing this function in console, outside X. I thought this is something that is definitely different from my current Windows setup. Can anyone confirm this? I'm doing ok in mplayer-X setup. Thanks for your reply.

to my knowlege its in a terminal (xterm, aterm, Eterm) in X.
i use -vo x11 by the way.
No you can actually play it on a console.
mplayer -vo vesa /path/to/filename.avi
And it plays on your console (if it's available).
