mplayer xrandr full screen across multiple monitors

Running Fedora 16 64 bit with Xinerama disabled(using xrandr), using latest catalyst(fglrx) driver.

Been playing around with different features of mplayer and am trying to get it to go full screen across multiple monitors. I have a grid display of 3 x 2 monitors but every flag I try for mplayer just makes it go full screen on one monitor. ANy ideas?

what you are looking for is called a 'video wall'
don't know if mplayer supports that, but VLC supposedly does.
