Start mplayer in the framebuffer

mplayer -vo fbdev $1 -fs -subcp ${2:-cp1251} -vf scale=${3:-1280:720}
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.

  • Many sites with Flash video players will download video files to /tmp on Linux, with temporary filenames like "FlashbGTHm4". These will often play in mplayer, totem, or other movie playing software. You must first navigate to a video page, let it start loading, and then pause playback.
