[MPlayer-users] mplayer w/o X?

>From reading the documentation on mplayer, it seemed to imply that one
could run mplayer to the TV-out (or even to a regular monitor, but TV-out
is what I care about here), without the need to be running X.  Is this the
case?  I think that to do so, I would need to specify some -vo options,
but it is not clear to me what those options are.  This is on my Dell
Inspiron 8200 laptop, which has an nVidia graphics card.  I'm using the
nVidia supplied binary drivers for running X, but I'd like to be able to
run mplayer directly to the TV-out w/o using X.  Can anyone help me
through this?
