    resizing video with mPlayer


    I compiled mPlayer on my Debian system (kernel 2.6.8-k7 and KDE 3.4) I had mPlayer installed previously and when i changed the size of the video window the movie would resize accordingly. With the one i just installed the video stays the same no matter what size i make the window (if i make the window smaller than the video, it cuts off parts of it. Does anyone know if there is a compile-time option for this, or even a commandline argument i could pass to correct this ?

    it sounds like the video output driver you're using is doing it, in the file ~/.mplayer/config you can set the default driver for the video output to use, put
    Code:
    vo=xv
    into it and see if that does the trick

    I figured it out, there is a command line arguement -zoom that tells it to automatically resize the video. Now it works great.
