> My laptop's wide screen display has an aspect ratio of 1.6:1 (1280/800). When I play a video using xv output, the video window is too wide. As an example, a video that should display at a 4:3 aspect ratio in fact plays at a 1.6:1 ratio. This happens when mplayer uses xv, opengl, or opengl with multiple textures as the output method. However the video plays as expected with x11 output. Do you think this is a driver issue or a mplayer issue?
I'm using MythTV on a 945GM with 1280x720 output and not seeing any such
issue. Try another player eg vlc or gxine/totem.
