I have a movie with a 1024x576 resolution while my screen resolution is 1280x800.

How can I keep the ratio of 1024/576 while MPlayer is stretched to the whole screen?

You can use the switch -monitoraspect 16:10, or put monitoraspect=16:10 into ~/.mplayer/config

  • @hhaamu so if my screen resolution is 1600x900 as shared by xrandr and the movie is a 1920x800 or some other resolution, what should I do ?
