mplayer problems on debian (sarge)
I've been having problems getting mplayer to work in debian now, and i can't seem to figure it out. I downloaded the package, since at first i couldn't portage it. I configured it and it gave me the error that I didn't have the codecs installed. Okay, no problem i thought. Installed codecs and no dice. I got sound but no video.
After a bit of searching i found that by adding to my /etc/apt/sources.list i could use portage. I did so, but no matter which version of portage I have it displays both audio and video, but when I try to put it in fullscreen the playback stays the same size and the rest of the screen just turns black (i.e. its not scaling the picture)
any ideas? please help.
