Heya :)

Is there a strait-forward way to get a working video wall (i.e. running a widescreen HD video over two monitors) in Gentoo?

Most of the “solutions” I found don’t work, or need specific X.org config setup.

Best,

Greetings,

Not sure if you have tried / "been given this solution", but have you tried running it with Xinerama?

Just a thought.

HTH.

Yes I tired it:
Code:
mplayer -xineramascreen -2 video.file

That did not work.

Okay,

How about trying this:
Code:
 ~ $ mplayer -fstype none -xineramascreen -2 video.file

or
Code:
 ~ $ mplayer -fstype -fullscreen -xineramascreen -2 video.file


HTH. Let us know.

Both kinda work. It starts and when I press F it goes to video wall mode, but the launcher/panel/systray are still on top. It also stops working if I move the mplayer window.

When I start an extra X server without a desktop environment it works perfectly. A bit inconvenient, but better than nothing ;)

Thx,

What if mplayer not scalling video and just output as it recorded size and not use all screen space?
