It sounds like mplayer is using it's generic x11 output device, rather than the xv or opengl device. Even when using the x11 output device, you can get the video to scale up if you use the -zoom option on the command line (or add 'zoom=yes' to your ~/.mplayer/config file). This will scale the video in software, though, which hits your CPU much more heavily than if you are using the xv or opengl output device.

What video card are you using?

Getting mplayer to use xv might be as simple as using the "-vo xv" option (or adding vo=xv to your ~/.mplayer/config file). However, I'm guessing that this would be used by default if it were available.

To see what driver you are using, we'd need to see your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file. Can you attach it to a post here?

To get Xv support, you will need to download and compile a newer version of the kernel DRM. This will be available in -STABLE sometime after the 7.1 release and is now available in -CURRENT. If you know what you are doing, you can build the DRM from git following the directions here: http://www.x.org/wiki/Development/git

To get OpenGL support, you would need to update Xorg and Mesa. These will be updated in the ports tree sometime after the 7.1 release as well.

Alternatively, you can use the sdl output device in mplayer. This should scale, without having to use the -zoom option, but the scaling will still be done in software.
