mplayer full screen (sdl)
I have a file/game/etc server hooked up to my tv.
For a while i was running fedora 3 on it.
Well recently i decided to switch to gentoo as i like the os a bit more and decided i didn't want the 'bloat' that comes with fedora.
Anyway, i have everything set up and working for the most part.
The problem is that i like to use this system to watch movies and whatnot that are saved on my harddrive. On the fedora system i used:
In order to get a full screen movie.
mplayer -vo sdl filename
The video card i have is the original ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon (32M AGP) [no number associated with this card, but linux tends to detect it as a 7200]. So i start xorg using the vesa driver and everything seems hunky-dorey. I tried to watch a fullscreen movie and its all scrambled. The normal x11 driver
works fine.... i just can't get full screen under it (creates a black border around the video).
mplayer -vo x11 filename
To be honest i have no idea what sdl is, i just know thats how i got full screen movies before.
I've tried moving to ati/radeon/fglrx drivers and get the same result.
Using the gl driver
i get fullscreen and its clear, but its jerky.
mplayer -vo gl filename
glxgears gives an output of 250 fps.... which i don't think is good since my mobile nvidia card gets 2500 and it certainly isn't top of the line either.
I don't really need a good card in this system as i don't play any games over the video quality of the snes. But having a clear fullscreen video sure would be helpful.
Oh one more thing. I'm using icewm on this system and was using gnome on the fedora system. I can't imagine that would have anything to do with it, but who knows...
I've emerged the latest version of libsdl and get the same result.
Anyone have any ideas?
