/usr/bin/mplayer -autosync 100 -nolirc -autoq 100 -slave -ao
alsa1x:surround51 -channels 6 -af
-v -vo xv,sdl,x11, -geometry 690x531+30+45  -cache 5000 -idx -vc xvid,
-vf pp=de,dsize=690:-2 

Does not work. Mplayer says:
VDec: vo config request - 640 x 352 (preferred csp: Planar YV12)
[PP] Using external postprocessing filter, max q = 6.
Trying filter chain: pp dsize vo
VDec: using Planar YV12 as output csp (no 0)
Movie-Aspect is 1.82:1 - prescaling to correct movie aspect.
VO Config (640x352->640x352,flags=0,'MPlayer',0x32315659)
REQ: flags=0x437  req=0x0
REQ: flags=0x437  req=0x0
VO: invalid dimensions!
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.

FATAL: Could not initialize video filters (-vf) or video output (-vo).

Uninit audio filters...

uninit audio: mp3lib
uninit video: ffmpeg
DEMUXER: freeing demuxer at 0x8585c30

Any ideas left.. ?
