I've been trying to get mplayer to stretch the video to full screen. when I hit the "f" for fullscreen there just a black boarder. any ideas how to fix this?

Try to change video output driver and see if it helps:

'mplayer -vo help'

This shows what drivers that were compiled:

'mplayer -vo $driver_name movie.avi'

This runs video with assigned driver. Then test the FullScreen function or you can type:

'mplayer -fs $driver_name move.avi'

Goodluck

You could also launch the file in terminal with the zoom switch. Works everytime. ;)

'mplayer -zoom movie.mpg'

two things I like to throw into ~/.mplayer/config instead of typing that everytime ....

# zoom image for full screen
zoom=yes
# disable verbosity in terminal
really-quiet=yes

when you recompile, youre also going to want to use the xv video option, that allows for video stretching.
