i am looking for both of these functionalitys myself, just didn't find
the time to do some tests.
what graphics card do you use, and what -vo options does it offer?
personally i never use anything x-server dependant, but i might consider
i figured, when i use the framebuffer device, i don't get ugly switches
like vesa output would produce them while setting up a new resolution
before playing any movie.
that might be a first important step.
also playing around with the buffering options might be worth something,
since the movies should best be prebuffered before starting to play in
order to load quick.
i guess the synchronization option will require some coding. i'd love to
see that in mplayer, but i am no coder at all..
if anybody else has some insight on how this could be easily achieved,
i guess i start with some testing on seemless loops in the next days.
i'll keep you informed.
