There is a wolk arround for this using -vop expand. In example, if your are
playing a 640 x 360 video, you must expand the image to 640x480. You
also can move the image up for making the black strip on the bottom taller in
order to make space for bigger a subtitle font.

Y made it in one ocasion then I don't remember exactly the parameters, but
make a few tests and you will find what you need. Try this:

-vop expand[=w:h:x:y:o]
