mplayer -vo x11, how do I specify which display?
I am able to run mplayer through a terminal in X using the following:
mplayer -vo x11 -ao alsa -dr -fs -zoom -double filename.mpg
...and it works perfectly. But what I need is to be able to specify which display to run the video on through the x11 driver somehow. It just constantly comes back with this:
vo: couldn't open the X11 display ()!
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
...as the terminal I am running mplayer from is not within X, but logged in through the network so it won't auto discover the display. Is there a command line thing like -vo x11:display=0.0 or something similar that is undocumented? I'm open to any suggestion! Thanks in advance.
Can't help you with an undocumented option. Try "man mplayer", search for -display.
The -display option worked! Thanks for that :)
