I' trying to get a video played in a non-toplevel-widget of another
application. I have the XWindow-ID of that widget, but mplayer seems
to play only in antoher window, when it is a toplevel-window, not a
widget inside another window. Is it possible to do this with mplayer?
I tried to use -vo xover, also. But it seems, that I'm too stupid to
use this feature... 


mplayer -wid 0x50000ee movie.avi


X11 error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  2 (X_ChangeWindowAttributes)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x50000ee
  Serial number of failed request:  40
  Current serial number in output stream:  43

mplayer -wid 0x50000ee -xover:xv movie.avi


VO XOverlay: xv doesn't support XOverlay
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

This happens with all driver, I tried to give xover as subdriver. 

Any help?
