This didn't seem to quite work. I tested with a Divx ;-) matrix
trailer that I downloaded. The sound worked fine, but all I got was a
white screen, scaling worked as well, but just gave me a bigger white
I tried playing an MPEG2-PS file as I had under the syncfb output
driver and it looked pretty much the same, except that it didn't seem
quite as sharp. However, the brightness was correct, whereas it was a
little dark under syncfb. But the sound still didn't work and I have a
feeling that its just a problem with the handling of MPEG2-PS files
by mplayer in general.
There were a couple of warnings with the compile of the mga_vid.o
module, so I'm going to try see if I can fix those, but the mga_vid_test
program worked fine.
As another piece of information, I was able to play the matrix.avi
file fine using mplayer with both the -xv and -x11 output modes.
