Mplayer -- Scaled Fullscreen

Read the man for mplayer, still haven't found the arguments (i run mplayer at command line) to fullscreen the video and have it scaled to fit.

I know about -fs, -zoom doesn't seem to do anything.

What about the -x -y or -xy options in combination with -zoom.
Or the -vop scale=xxx:yyy

the -vop scale=w:h seems to work but i have to modify W and H for each video. isn't there a 'width = 100%' option and height is based off the videos monitoraspect ratio? ... if that makes anysense. I pass just the W argument and that doesn't seem to work.

*yawn* need sleep.

yeah it's probably using a crap video output. if you are asking questions like this it's a REALLY good idea to attach the output from the command. i don't know what output you're using though, as X11 WILL go ful screen with the -zoom option and nothing else.

A quick shortcut until get the -zoom fixed may be to make an alias in your .bashrc file.

alias mplayer_full='mplayer -vop scale=xxx:yyy'

or whatever you what to call it. Not a perminate solution, but a quick one for the meantime.
