    Few problems with maplyer in FC8


    Hi,

    I ran into couple of problem while using mplayer. I was doing investigation on the options that mplayer has given, but couldn't figure out how to solve these:

    1. Whatever file I'm playing in mplayer be it DVD or avi or anything, the display is coming with certain hitch, that is the movement on the screen is not smooth, rather jerky.

    2. The subtitle font is soo big, that it covers most part of the bottom of the screen. How to decrease the subtitle font?

    3. When I'm playing dvd, it's starting directly from the movie, the menu is not coming. Even if it comes (a few times) I can't select anything on the menu page.

    I have inbuilt Intel VGA card.

    I have no answer for you but I always seem to have major problems with mplayer. May I suggest you give Xine a try instead. Have a look at VLC as well. That just plays everything. Good luck
    I am on a journey to mastering Linux and I got a bloody long way to go!!!

    Thanks for your reply. Ya, vlc play the things quiet well, without disturbance, but xine gave the same kind of problem. I want to try mplyer because I've heard so many good things about it. Playing video properly is one among the two reasons I'm still having windows in my computer. Otherwise, I want to transit completely.

    Hi,

    Do anybody has the solution for the problem 1) ? The rest can be ignored, but the quality of video producing by any movie player (be it mplayer, vlc, totem-xine) is horrible. I really want a solution for this.

    thank you.

    Is VLC player working fine? Have you face any problem in VLC?

    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    /sbin/lspci | grep -i vga
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    No, in vlc the video quality is same, choppy with certain hitch. Right now I can't post the output of what you asked for, can post 4-5 hours later.
