  • It's made for a script use, where you have 3 parameters: 1. parameter is the filename 2. (optional) the encoding for subtitles 3. (optional) the scaling of the video, since fullscreen doesn't mean that the video will be scaled.

  • When recording screencast some people like to have the image from their webcam, so the can show something, that can't be seen on the desktop. So starting mplayer with these parameters you will have a window with no frames, borders whatsoever, and selecting the window a hitting the "F" key you will bring it in fullscreen. if you want to position the frame somewhere else, you could play with the --geomeptry option where 100%:100% mean bottom right corner. The HEIGHT and WIDTH can't be changed as you like, since the most webcams support specified dimensions, so you would have to play with it to see what is supported

Force wrap all text to 80 columns in Vim
This is assuming that you're editing some file that has not been wrapped at 80 columns, and you want it to be wrapped. While in Vim, enter ex mode, and set the textwidth to 80 columns: $ :set textwidth=80 Then, press: $ gg to get to the top of the file, and: $ gqG to wrap every line from the top to the bottom of the file at 80 characters. Of course, this will lose any indentation blocks you've setup if typing up some source code, or doing type setting. You can make modifications to this command as needed, as 'gq' is the formatting command you want, then you could send the formatting to a specific line in the file, rather than to the end of the file. $ gq49G Will apply the format from your current cursor location to the 49th row. And so on.
