mplayer and fullscreen?
Could someone that have Nvidia GF440mx and mplayer tell me what kind of vo they use to get fullscreen?

thewizard20 03-12-2004 12:56 PM

i think it should be -vo xv

I had to specify -zoom to get it to zoom to fullscreen...otherwise it just put it normal size in a fullscreen window with black around the edges.

Does this mean I need to run it in console to get it fullscreen...
Other users running it trough x with mx440?

i have the exact video card and i don't specify anything ...
i just type :
mplayer movie.avi

if i do specify then my results are as followed :
by typing :
mplayer -vo x11 movie.avi
it won't go fullscreen and it stays centered in the middle of the screen
if i type :
mplayer -vo xv movie.avi
and then press:

to go fullscreen it works fine ... so by default that is what mine is using and it maximizes
perfectly fine ...

No, you don't have to run it console to get it fullscreen, you just might need to specify some command line arguments.

Yeah, i've tried xv and x11 and all that, but still no fullscreen. And if i run regular mplayer(not gui) I get black and white...

you might need to install the nvidia drivers

dslboy 03-12-2004 05:55 PM

If you're talking about the binary package from
I already hav 'em, thus I think the -vo x11 i use is wrong for my display card...

in .mplayer/config the only relative option I have is
fs=yes # Enlarges movie window to your desktop's size.

In .mplayer/gui.conf I have:
vo_driver = "xv"
load_fullscreen = "yes"

and it works with my nvidia gf4

dslboy 03-12-2004 08:23 PM

It works now..
On some movies, they turn b/w, with xv driver, but it works!

Thanx m8!
