My personal experience with mplayer is that it lacks proper aspect
ratio detection or guessing based on source that does not contain the
correct info. xine-lib seems to handle this much better. Also
automatic cropping is a nice feature that works quite well in the
vdr-xineliboutput plugin (even with vdpau). Most people doesn't seem
to mind that the output is stretched or squeezed incorrectly, but I
do. I prefer it that a circle appears to be that and not in the
elliptical form.
