    Hi everyone

    it is rather difficult to create theme (loop.avi) for MPlayer EC
    When I create a video with 624x352 resolution of the image does not display on 16 / 9, but 4 / 3,
    with this picture

    however, I use the widescreen version

    video compression needs to be xvid mpeg4 codec otherwise it most likely will not display.
    you can use upto a 1 minute loop.avi

    stick to either
    4/3 - 640x456
    16/9 - 624x352

    did this help?

    or try another fresh option:

    MPlayer CE background loops.

    Software used:

    *Gimp
    *AVIDemux

    1. Open Gimp and create a new image (640x456 for standard defenition, 624x352 for widescreen). You can use whatever image program you want, but Gimp is free, cross-platform, and powerful. So is avidemux, btw.

    2. Edit the new image for your background so it looks nice and stuff. Save it as a jpg or png.

    3. Open Avidemux. Set the video codec to xvid. Open the image you created. Copy the image and paste it several times so that you have a good number of frames. I'd say 60 frames is more than enough. Save the video as "loop.avi".

    You're done.

    Can you upload the video so we can test it? There should be no reason why it shouldn't work. Any video mplayer normally plays can be used as loop.avi.
