My mplayer settings
To customize mplayer, modify the file
~/.mplayer/config. Every time you launch mplayer, settings are read from this file. Reduce command-line arguments and put them in this file.
Here is my config file:
# Write your default config options here! # Font font=/home/jabba/.mplayer/fonts/comic.ttf fs = "1" #subfont-text-scale = "3" subfont-text-scale = "4" #subfont-text-scale = "5" subcp = "iso-8859-2" #aspect="4:3" #aspect="16:9" # audio output: ALSA # PulseAudio caused a problem in Jaunty 9.04 beta ao=alsa # video driver vo=xv # Find subtitle files (1: load all subs containing movie name) sub-fuzziness=1 # Font encoding subfont-encoding=unicode # Subtitle file encoding utf8=yes # Resample the font alphamap (10: bold black outline) ffactor=10 # Font size (2: proportional to movie width) subfont-autoscale=2 # Font blur radius (default: 2) subfont-blur=1.0 # font outline thickness (default: 2) subfont-outline=1.0
For subtitles I use the Comic font. Download it somewhere and specify its absolute path. Videos start in fullscreen (
fs). Previously I had some problems with the accents in Hungarian subtitles but with
subcp I managed to solve it. The other settings are mainly for the subtitles.
