Thanks Kiste for the reply. But my configuration is Ubuntu Karmic and I
believe the video intel drivers also may be a cause for the issue bcos
it also shows up X11 error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) most
of the time while loading video.
So I would like to move on to SDL with DGA instead and direct the
mplayer output to this window.
I need to create a SDL surface within a GTK window which is a top level
window at a fixed position on the screen. Then map the SDL surface
window Id to mplayer for displaying video on to it.
I tried the window Id hack (gtk-demo) & Example on how to output Mplayer
video on SDL windows (gtksdl) but SDL opens its own window after the
SDL_SetVideoMode call and then the display goes back into the GTK window.
My requirement is just to have a SDL window at a fixed position within a
top level GTK window and pass the window Id of this sdl window to
mplayer which then will take care of the rest.
