Simple enough:  mplayer -xy 1024 -geometry 0:0 

Since you're using -vo x11, you'll need to add "-zoom" to that, so it
does software scaling.

Not exactly sure what you're looking for, but probably either
"-monitoraspect 16:9"  or just "-aspect 16/9"  will do what you need.  

If not, look into the "-x" and "-y" options.
