MPlayer cannot do full screen in my freshly installed Debian Jessie on Ace Aspire E5-551G-T16Q laptop that has AMD Radeon R7 series graphics. Here is the output from
lshw -short -C display:
H/W path Device Class Description ======================================================= /0/100/1 display Kaveri [Radeon R6 Graphics] /0/100/2.1/0 display Opal XT [Radeon R7 M265]
While it is possible to play video files in
mplayer, it is not possible to see fullscreen. Here are the possibly interesting lines of
mplayer output during startup:
Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory [vdpau] Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 1 [VO_XV] It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available. [VO_XV] Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support and read [VO_XV] DOCS/HTML/en/video.html#xv! [VO_XV] See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. [VO_XV] Try -vo x11.

[gl] no GLX support present Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
Debian Jessie installation was pretty straightforward. I did not perform any
Xorg config and do not have
nvidia-vdpau-driver that brings
libvdpau_nvidia.so (in the error above) does not help. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: Output from
dpkg -l | grep glx:

I just reinstalled Debian and continue to face the same problem making me believe that it is not due to something that I've done.
