Problem with Fullscreen on Mplayer
 
when I select 'Fullscreen' when playing a video in Mplayer the actual video stays the same size and the rest of the screen is just black, the same thing happens with 'Double Size'
How can I fix this?

You are referring to gmplayer. With command line mplayer, -fs probably DOES give you full screen. In your gmplayer preferences change your vo choice to xv (it's x11 by default IIRC) and then restart gmplayer and try again.

Cool

Thanks MasterC, I was having the very same problem. And your solution solved it (with gmplayer).

However, trying to use mplayer -vo xv -fs something.avi didn't immediately work all that well. So, I first ran mplayer -vo xv something.avi and then pressed ctrl + f. And that did the trick. :)
