Yet another mplayer question


Hi y'all... I have a simple question... When I use 'mplayer -vo gl' it runs smoothly (bearly uses the cpu), but when I switch to full screen the whole image is streched to fit the screen. This looks horrible with those 16:9 movies out there... How can I convince mplayer to strech the movie, but to preserve the aspec ratio?

I checked the man and used -aspect, but it seems only to work while in windowed mode... when I go to fullscreen it looses the aspect ratio...

Also, a related question... How do I set up tv channes? Mybe somebody has an example he'd like to share...

Thanks for the help.

I belive by default if you use the -zoom option it will keep the aspect ratio of the movie when stretching.

Nope... -zoom doesn't help me in fullscreen. The original window is nice, but still distorted in fullscreen.

I was able to fix it... I'm using -vo xv instead of gl and it is mantaining the aspect ratio in fullscreen too!

Now, does anyone have any idea about the tv channels? I was able to start the thing by selecting a frequency, but I want to use channels and i haven't figured out how...

I'm using
Code:
mplayer -vo x11 -tv on:driver=v4l:device=/dev/v4l/video0:norm=PAL:chanlist=europe-east:channel=19:width=640:height=480
and I can see a channel, but how do I create a list and how do I switch between channels?
