[MPlayer-users] Scaling and Cropping

I produce encodes with a script, using a 2 pass encode that produces
an output called movie.2
If so indicated by cropdetect, as a final step the script crops
movie.2 to the final encode, movie.avi

The dvd giving me a problem presents in mplayer as a 720x480 image,
with an extensive black border on all sides in full-screen
mplayer movie.2 presents as a 720x352 image, with black borders only
at top and bottom in full-screen
mplayer movie.avi appears identical to movie.2, but it is not because
mplayer movie.2 -y 480 is identical to mplayer movie.2, but
mplayer movie.avi -y 480 is identical to the presentation of the dvd

I infer from this that this movie crops normally, but will scale only
in the horizontal direction, not at all vertically.  Is there anything
that might be done to get it to scale vertically as well?
