Hi,

I just started using ubuntu so Im a total newbie. I installed mplayer and everything I need to watch movies from ninjavideo.net. I have no problem getting a picture, but when I press full screen the size of the picture doesn't change, it is just centered inside an all black screen.

I tried searching this forum, but could not find a solution that worked.

Ok, so I fugured it out.

Here's how I did it if anybody runs into the same problem: Run Mplayer and right click the down in the right corner of the control panel. Choose preferences -> video and hightlight the "xv" option. This has to be done in the player window and will not work in the online screening window.
