Gmplayer & fullscreen


Hi,

I've got a problem with gmplayer, when I try and start gmplayer from the commandline with this:

Code:
gmplayer -fs video.avi
It still opens windowed. If I try the same option with mplayer it works and opens full screen.

I was just wondering if anyone knew how to start gmplayer fullscreen?

Can you change it to full screen by hitting the F key?

Also: Which vo driver does gmplayer use?

x11 for example will not run full screen, but always the size of the video. Try setting it to gl2, gl or xv.

mplayer and gmplayer have their own configuration files (config and gui.conf, respectively), which could explain why one works and the other doesn't.

Hope this helps.
