Yes you can run mplayer full-screen with x11. The catch is that
you must have a powerful enough processor (say a Duron or
Celeron), and something called MTRR enabled in the kernel. The
trick then is to use software scaling. You can use a command
mplayer -vop scale=640:480 movie.avi
This will even work without X, if your kernal has framebuffer
support. You might need to add the "-framedrop" flag to keep the
audio and video in sync.
