    I can't get mplayer to start with the window double-sized, but I can pass it a specific size - which is almost as good, e.g.:
    mplayer -vo xv -screenw 700 -screenh 480 /path/to/movie.mpg

    i must say, it didn't resize it perfectly, but maybe it will work better for you. My video hardware sucks and my mplayer is way out of date...

    have you tried SMplayer? It is a nice alternative front end GUI player, but apart from that, it might have more command line oriented features.
