MPlayer output


Hi,

I finally managed to watch movies with MPlayer. Thanks for the help.
The next step I wanted to make was to watch the movie in full screen mode. But somehow, this is not possible. When I switch th mplayer to full screen mode, the movie keeps its small size and the rest of the screen turns to black. Is there anyone who knows how to correct this problem ??

In advance, thanks for answering.

Gregor

I found that by changing my output device it fixed the problem:
mplayer -vo xv filename.avi

Then to full screen:
f

Or launch in full screen:
mplayer -fs -vo xv filename.avi

Cool

and the other half... you're actually currently using the X11 output, and if you were to add -zoom to the command line it will work as you wanted. but xv is a much better option.
