[MPlayer-users] aspect ratio change in 1920x1080 seq.

I'm using mplayer (a somewhat old version) to play a raw YUV 1920x1080
(progressive) experimental sequence.  The command line is:

   mplayer -rawvideo on:w=1920:h=1080:fps=60 toys_and_calendar.yuv

It plays just fine (actually, too slow, but that's an I/O issue)
except that the displayed aspect ratio has been changed: it's too
narrow so things look tall and skinny.

If this is a (fixed?) bug please let me know.  Seems I've read
something about aspect ratio changes with 1920x1080 material but
I can't find it either on the net or in the docs.

I've tried fooling around with `-aspect' and `-vop scale' to no avail.

I would love to know what "aspect: Warning: no suitable new res found!" means
Is it because the displayed sequence is too big for my screen?
How to overcome this?

Any help will be most appreciated.

Here is the output:  (Yes I know the Mplayer version is old.  I must
find time to build the newest CVS.)
