mplayer: picture does not scale
 
I have installed mplayer. A prebuilt package to ubuntu. I then installed the codecs manually. But when playing a video, the picture does not scale. It is in a little box (most likely the video resolution). If I play with fullscreen-option it is the same. Anyone know what this is about?

i assume you are using a less than ideal video output, i.e. x11. use xv instead if you can and you'll get scaling video and over 50% less cpu usage. you can add the -zoom option if you can only use x11, but it's a sucky video output, so use xv if you can.

thanks. it works perfect with xv.

mplayer not working in full screen
 
this sounds like it can fix my problem with debian but how do I switch to xv ????

Ahh c'mon this is 6 years old! I think that's a record for a reply of mine.

-vo xv

but mplayer has changed a LOT in this time... it quite possibly isn't your solution anymore.

Thank you for your post, have found fix on debian forum,

typing

xvinfo

gave no adaptors present on screen #0

sudo apt-get install firmware-linux*

and a reboot cured problem.

Hope this helps anybody else having this problem.

Using debian tesing xfce.

Thanks Davetesc
