You don't specify the low 300x300 resolution (also your syntax for the 
filter is very wrong.)

you may want to try using some thing like

`mplayer.exe -vo direct3d "path\to\my\video" -vf 
dsize=300:300,expand=1920:1080  -geometry 1920x1080+0+0`

there is likely another, better way to do the kind of thing you are 
trying to do,
But I cant think of any directly that use the vo to do it.
