What do you meant?
mplayer can use SWscaling only for YV12 fourcc.
Indeed you should use vidix with mplayer's vesa if you want have HW support for scaling:
mplayer -vo vesa:vidix ...
You didn't tell what's ATI card do you have.
Currently vidix has only rage128 and radeon support for ATI's cards.
So if you have 3dRage or Mach64 you should write mach64_vid to have possibility run it
over VESA or wait until it will be implemented by other developers ;)

It doesn't ignores them for YV12 fourcc.
so please always use libavcodec family or libmpeg2 codec:
-vc ffdivx -vc ffmpeg12 -vc h263 and so on (RTFM)
