=2E..or in "~/mplayer/config", I like to do this...

ao              =3D sun
vo              =3D x11
vm              =3D yes
zoom            =3D no

That just runs it full screen, and also uses the "sun" audio driver,
tweaked for NetBSD. For best results with "vm" yes, "zoom" no, you
have to have a bunch of resolutions available for your server to
switch to, and the cursor has to be in upper left quadrant of your
virtual screen when you invoke "mplayer".
