Actually I started like this:
mplayer -vo cvidix -fs movie.avi
I forgot the -fs option when I wrote the mail.
If I start like:
mplayer -vo vesa -fs movie.avi
blacks out the outside areas. But after quiting mplayer, I get a black
console. The mplayer-doc says that this is possible and suggestes to switch
to another vt and back. Unfotunately that doesn't work. The virtual console
reappears only if get back into X with Ctrl-Alt-F7, then back to tty1.
