Found some Transport Stream MPEG 2 files on the net recently that are HD
resolution and wondered whats the best way to play these. As they are too
large for my monitor i've tried
mplayer -x 720 -y 400 file.ts
but that doesn't work too well. Then I tried
mplayer -vf scale=720x400 file.ts
which produces a properly scaled result but hammers the hell out of my
Athlon XP 2k+ and won't play the video properly.
In the end I used mencoder to drop the file to a 720x400 based huffyuv
which plays perfecty but its double the size of the origional MPEG-TS
1. Whats the minimum spec for playing HD streams under Linux?
2. Recommendations on the best way to play these streams
3. What do I do about trying to play this full screen? I want to scale
horizontal and keep the aspect ration correct.
