[MPlayer-users] Help needed: Video scaling

Thanks for the input, guys

I've three screens running, but on 3 different machines. They are sync'd using the udp master/slave functionality. Only one of them needs to be scaled down.

The suggested -zoom -xy 0.67 worked well in isolation, but seemed to struggle when I had a master & slave setup going, where either the master or slave didn't have a zoom option set. But adding -zoom -xy 1 to the machines that didn't need scaling seemed to solve the problem. 

So it looks like I have a working solution. Won't be able to test it in the full rig until tomorrow, but I'll let you know how I get on.

How does it not work? 
How many screens do you have configured and at which resolutions? 
If multiple, you might need to specify which to go fullsceen on or it might try to cover both. 
As always, full MPlayer output makes it much easier for people to help as well.
