It didn't go fullscreen for me (it just took up 60% of the screen). I also couldn't get it to quit (I was running tmux started in a different TTY when I launched mplayer; maybe that has something to do with it?).

I want full screen as well, but I'd like to be able to pause it and go back to the terminal underneath it. Does SIGSTOP do that?

Yeah, you can SIGSTOP it, but since you can go fullscreen and back by hitting 'f' one generally goes windowed again beforehand.

Going fullscreen takes window manager cooperation: perhaps your wm wasn't cooperating that day?

Maybe my cases are getting confused here:

MPlayer on TTY2 under tmux started on TTY1 (untested since this happened since recovery required a reboot):

- shows video at 1:1; not fullscreened;
- ignores keyboard;
- cannot switch to a different TTY.

MPlayer on X11:

- works as expected.

what was your -ao option (in the tty case)?

I dont remember setting it explicitly, so it was probably using pulseaudio.

And your -vo ?

It was probably fbdev or fbdev2 (or I let mplayer choose the default). Maybe I'll try this again this weekend.

Oh, yeah, right, I had it completely backwards. I have no idea what mplayer does in fbdev: I basically never use fbdev to do more than 'startx' unless something is wrong with X, and then I only use it to fix it. :)

I use the TTY on long trips where battery saving is key. Not running X helps, though I imagine with non-KMS drivers, the driver's power management probably helps more than the extra load hurts.
