I love using mplayer via cmd line (Ubuntu 9.10) for the keyboard shortcuts ease and etc etc. It's becoming a necessity because my old Dell Latitude laptop is rapidly losing the battle against processing power requirements of newer Ubuntu releases & higher resolution videos, etc.
Any way to "sharpen" mplayer video quality via cmd line shortcut or config file preset(s)? I use the brightness/saturation etc keyboard shortcuts all the time, but don't know how to do a "sharpen."
VLC gui has a way of using sharpen, in addition to the various saturation, exposure, brightness adjustment capabilities, but I greatly prefer using mplayer via cmd line if possible. Also mplayer gamma? VLC also has gamma adjustments, although I don't know much how to use it or optimal settings right now.
Although I've done a bunch of reading here and there I still don't have a sound understanding of what I'm doing.
Help - Pointers?
