[MPlayer-users] Gluing it all

I use a shell script and some tweaking to get the my box to start playing 
clips as soon as it boots, and keep doing it until I turn it off. However, it 
always displays the X background (which I set to black) between clips. I 
don't have a problem with that, except that the cursor (X) centered on the 
screen is really annoying.

Is there a way to either 1) remove the X cursor  so that I can play the movie 
unobstructed using -rootwin  or 2) making mplayer use the same window for the 
next clip, without letting the X root window show? 

PS: and no,  the option to not redraw the window doesn't work for this (I 
don't have it near at hand right now)

Thanks for any help
