Oh. Fair enough.
I have modified my mplayer.sh to use the X output rather than mpegpes,
so a mplayer window opens up to play the .avi file or whatever. But a
weird problem occurs.
-If xine is running (I use the xine player as my card has no mpeg2
decode) the mplayer window launches full screen, but the video is in a
smaller window with huge black borders
-If xine isn't running, and VDR is using skincurses, the mplayer window
opens up fullscreen with full screen video fine.
Any ideas on this one?
