I just create mplayer.conf in /usr/local/etc/mplayer/

adding:
vop=rotate=1

and it works.

I am unclear about how you got fullscreen working, can someone post their mplayer.conf contents.

Okay folks, I'm almost there... I have been able to get mplayer to play in QVGA landscape from console following Gab74 instructions. Pretty cool, impressed quite a bit a couple of guys in my office!!

Gab47, it would definitely help if you could share with us the mplayer.conf "before" and "after" your changes. If it is not too long you could just write down all its lines in a posting here.

It is still not clear to me which of the commands you pass to mplayer in console mode have to be inserted in the mplayer.conf to have it work from Kino2.

I also have another questions on playing files encoded in WMV format. What is the right audio codec to select and how do you give that command to mplayer?
So far I could get it to work only from Kino2 in the usual small video window, but I have to select "MAD" in Preferences/Audio to have the video play smoothly and there is actually NO audio.

If I select "ffmpeg" there is some audio but it is choppy and it screws up the video as well, making that choppy too.
I tried to select "Other" and putting in the input box "ffwma", which is the coded listed in the "File Info" window, but I still get the choppy video and audio.

The file I'm trying to play is encoded at 320x240, 218k, 15fps. When I play it on my PC it compares quite well with Divx encoded files, believe it or not...

Thanks for any hints you guys can provide.

My procedure:
  1. Install Kino2 v3.0
  2. Install mplayer w100
  3. Delete /usr/local/bin/mplayer
  4. link /home/QtPalmtop/bin/mplayer to /usr/local/bin/mplayer
  5. link /home/QtPalmtop/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf to /home/zaurus/.mplayer/mplayer.conf
  6. link /home/QtPalmtop/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf to /usr/local/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf
  7. Edit /home/QtPalmtop/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf, and add "vop=rotate=1"
  8. Edit /home/QtPalmtop/apps/Multimedia/kino2.desktop, and delete "Display=640x480,144dpi,480x640,144dpi"
  9. Click and hold on Kino2 icon, enable "Display with magnified screen" and disable "Execute with root privilege"
    In Kino2:
  1. File/Preferences/Core, enable "Direct Access to Frame Buffer"
  2. File/Preferences/Video, enable "Enable Doublebuffering"
  3. File/Preferences/Audio, enable "ffmpeg"
  4. Enable "View/Fullscreen"
  5. Keep other options in unable
Now I can play a 320x240 movie in 640x480/landscape mode.

Thanks for the steps, Siliconbug. I followed your steps and they have got me closer, but I am still having problems.

First,
QUOTE
Edit /home/QtPalmtop/etc/mplayer/o.conf, and modify
# monitoraspect=4:3
# monitoraspect=16:9
monitoraspect=3:4
to
monitoraspect=4:3
# monitoraspect=16:9
# monitoraspect=3:4

I did not find o.conf, but found those lines in mplayer.conf and changes it there. Is that incorrect? Should I have the o.conf file?

The clip I am trying is one I downloaded and file info tells me it is 320x240, 14.985 fps, and MP42 codec. When I play it per your instructions it plays in a fullscreen window but it is still very small and in the lower left corner. If I use View/Scale and then play it it is fullscreen but VERY choppy.

Any ideas on this?

I did not find o.conf

typo. corrected.

However, it seems an unnecessary step, so I remove it. In fact, when I watch a 320x240 movie, I prefer to enlarge to a 480x360 movie on the 480x640 screen, not a 640x480 movie on the 640x480 screen/landscape mode.

Thanks to all. I have read this thread and been able to see my movies thanks to your ideas.
I have installed kino2 and the standard version of MPlayer, not the "w 100". I have made this last the only mplayer and now everything runs smoothly.
The real trick that you have found is the use of the "double size" that the 6000 has.
Great job!!

2. Install mplayer w100

when I attempt to install mplayer w100 (mplayer-w100_1.0rc21-1_arm.ipk

I get a message prompting me to install missing files:
"This package seems to depend on other files. Please install them, too"

Does anyone know what those missing files are? And where to get them.

Exactly which version of mplayer do yo suggest (and where to get it).


Other than that, I have been able to get varying results...
I have found that if I use the screen rotate button/feature prior to playing the movie, it will play in landscape for me without having to add the line to the conf

Also, is there an optimal size for a movie?
I've tried playing AVIs from torrents and they are wayyy too choppy (the audio is ok) to watch.
I can't find an easy to use (linux based) converter.

thanks

How's the video performance of the Z6k, especially for videos in 640x480?
Which codec works best (audio & video)?
On my 5500G mplayer seemed to have the best performance (ogm at 320x240 and sound <= 96kHz was close to running fluently), is this still true?


To sum it up, can I watch (most of) my videos without prior scaling/converting?

Hi,

for Sound you can use the stancard player. I use it with mp3 from 128 to 384 kbit/s
Video works great with Kino 0.3

Regards,

Ion

This may not apply to the 6000's, but with the cxx0 series you can't play 640*480 videos...
