After install a mplayer config is created under $HOME/.mplayer/config but you 
are free to create /etc/mplayer.conf as a system wide configuration for all

It's only under DOCS not installed, I alway though Arpi had a special reason 
not to copy it, maybe not... :)

That depends much on the output driver used, if you are using xv (-vo xv) you 
may use the -fs switch, for x11 with installed X modeswitching extension 
(XF86VM) you may use -vo x11 -vm otherwise use -vo x11 -fs, if you use SDL 
driver you can use -vm -zoom -fs switches with different behaviour (-fs 
fullscreen with scaling, no modechange; -vm modeswithcing without scaling; 
-zoom modeswitching with scaling) for the sdl driver of you choice (-sdl 
<drivername>) or simply startup with sdl out and use F key to switch to 
fullscreen and C to cycle between available fullscreenmodes. (this info can 
also be found in DOCS/SDL)

Thanx! =)
