    Hey Rocket!

    A few issues with 'mplayer -vo fbdev2' outstanding but it definetly is headed in the right direction. Hopefully kv-5.9.2 solves all the outstanding i915drmfb frame buffer device issues. I am regaining confidence that it will be sooner than later but that remains to be seen.

    Speaking of mplayer this works perfectly from an xterm commandline;
    mplayer -vo x11 <inset name of AV file here> -zoom
    where the -zoom switch MUST be at the end of the commandline in order to successfully enable the 'f' key in order to switch on|off fullscreen mode. Works like a charm ... with absolutely no need for an overbloated and extremely annoying GUI interface.

    Life is good,
    Maurice

    We've just noticeably fallen behind on this machine. We'll have to fix that.

    mplayer -vo x11 <inset name of AV file here> -zoom

    Not on this machine.

    We seem to be lacking xorg drivers. I am betting that there is no xorg on this machine so fbdev2 is the way to go.

    Hey Maurice!

    mplayer -vo x11 <inset name of AV file here> -zoom

    Not on this machine.

    Same situation here except;

    -={ "<Esc>:read !mplayer -vo help | sed 's/\t/ /g'" starts }=-
    /bin/bash: mplayer: command not found
    -={ "<Esc>:read !mplayer -vo help | sed 's/\t/ /g'" ends }=-

    There is no mplayer on this machine nevermind xorg. Should we fix this? Offhand I don't see why given that 2/3's of us can easily take care of it. I say leave me out of it.

    Life is good,

    Here's my $HOME/bin/fbplayer script, hope it helps:

    clear
    setterm -cursor off
    mplayer -really-quiet -vo fbdev2 -vf scale=:-1 "$@"
    setterm -cursor on
    stty sane

    My graphics device:

    Intel Mobile 4 Series Integrated Graphics driver: i915 v: kernel

    I am using Slackware 14.2 with MESA 13.0.6
    and the 5.4.66 kernel (custom upgrades).
    No X is running except by a necessity. Framebuffer. Videos play well.

    Hey Real!

    Here's my $HOME/bin/fbplayer script, hope it helps

    It works here on the console. However I add a ffmpeg one liner to determine the aspect ratio so that mplayers fullscreen can be determined and deployed. It lacks the ability that the x11 driver has so that the f key can toggle on/off fullscreen mode. That used to work on old matrox cards on the console.

    and the 5.4.66 kernel

    I am currently running kv5.4.72 which is the latest of the 5.4.x releases. It works great.

    Life is good,
    Maurice
