-aspect is for telling mplayer what was the aspect ratio of original
movie before any operation on it.
In order to view properly some movies on dxr3 I use scale, crop and/or
Original movie is 640x272 which is widescreen movie (aspect 1:2.35).
Mplayer would probably play it as 16:9 (distorted horse faces ;), so I
just add -vop expand=640:480:0:104 and mplayer will play it with 4:3
aspect ratio with wide bars above and below.
If I want to cut it to 16:9 aspect ratio (I don't like too much playing
cinema widscreen on TV) I add -vop crop=480:480:80:0,expand=640:480:0:104
I don't remember right now, but I think that you had to set aspect of
original (i.e. before cut) material with -aspect for mplayer to deduce
correct aspect ratio of final video.
