Hm? please show full mplayer log with
mplayer -noaspect <movie file>
It shouldn't prescale with -noaspect, at least if you use option before
list of file names.

Well there are also complicated things like aspect switches in the
middle of the movie, and dvd can have parts with different aspect
ratio, I'm not sure -noaspect works for that, it might fail with dvdnav
for that reason, for example. It has effect only on starts of the stream.
