huh? Please tell us, what meade you think of -zrxd* as an option for this.

| -zrxdoff <x display offset>, -zrydoff <y display offset> (-vo zr only)
|       If  the  movie is smaller than the TV screen, these options con­
|       trol the position of the movie relative to the upper left corner
|       of the screen.  The movie is centered by default.

which part of '-vo zr only' is so hard to understand? :-)

btw, your issue can probably solved by your window manager, but i'm not
very good in those beasts, i just know my blackbox ;)
