I'm in the process of cleaning up old bugreports. This is a really old
one, and I need to apologize for not coming to this earlier.

Does adding -zoom help here? From the manpage:
Allow software scaling, where available. This will allow
scaling with output drivers (like x11, fbdev) that do not sup-
port hardware scaling where MPlayer disables scaling by default
for performance reasons.
That should fix it for all drivers but xv. If this problem is only with
xv, then this needs to be fixed in the radeon drivers.
