[MPlayer-users] A 1:1 rendition, please

What commandline options can I use with mplayer to guarantee that it will 
render one display pixel for every pixel in the file?

I ask because I just tried to play a 1920x1080 file on a 1920x1200 display, 
and had to explicitly add:

-monitoraspect 16:10

...to make it look anything like right - otherwise, mplayer was rendering 
the image vertically compressed, more like a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. I have no 
idea how mplayer arrived at the conclusion that this was correct. Visually 
it looked like it was assuming a 4:3 display, which I can't see is a very 
sensible default, but regardless - is there any way to guarantee 1:1
