What you using to view this? With mplayer i get the same thing for some videos
with the vesa video out (-vo vesa) - a border around the picture because its
not full screen. (I use vesa cuz it Just Works. I see movies on my tv.
Presto. Havent tried the CVS repository of gatos's ati.2 to get X on my
tv to get the -vo x11 type stuff going, but if vesa works, why bother? :)

I can use the -fs switch for fullscreen for most things, but certain codecs
'do not support zoom or resize' (to give fs). The ones that do this are the
ones encoded in 24 or 32 bits that i have to force down to 16 with -bpp 16 to
get to work, but if I use that then I cant use -fs.

Any ideas around this? Why cant I do 'software resize' with -zoom then?
(and why dont -x and -y work? mplayer seems to ignore these settings with
-vo vesa..)
