How can run mplayer in Xnest?

Post by ad » Sat, 31 Aug 2002 11:41:55


I am trying to run mplayer with Xnest as
$ Xnest -query localhost :2 -geometry 800x600+0+0 &

and when I try to run mplayer in it, I get the following error. Can
anybody run run mplayer in Xnest or tell me how to fix it? BTW, I can run
the mplayer with regular XWindow without any problem. Thanks.
Gdk-ERROR **: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  serial 163 error_code 3 request_code 20 minor_code 0


1. Running Xnest with different depth?

I would like to know if it is possible under XFree863.2 (SVGA server,
Diamond Stealth 64 VRAM) to be able to run Xnest at a different display
depth than the root display.  For ex., I would like to be able to
run the root display at 16 bpp (or better), and Xnest at 8 bpp.  This
would prove to be handy, since wabi only runs at 8 bpp.  From the
Xnest docs this looks to be possible if one has appropriately configure
the display.

Thanks in advance...
