I had to specify -zoom to get it to zoom to fullscreen...otherwise it just put it normal size in a fullscreen window with black around the edges.

i have the exact video card and i don't specify anything ...
i just type :
mplayer movie.avi

if i do specify then my results are as followed :
by typing :
mplayer -vo x11 movie.avi
it won't go fullscreen and it stays centered in the middle of the screen
if i type :
mplayer -vo xv movie.avi
and then press:
Code:
f
to go fullscreen it works fine ... so by default that is what mine is using and it maximizes
perfectly fine ...

No, you don't have to run it console to get it fullscreen, you just might need to specify some command line arguments.

If you're talking about the binary package from nvidia.com
I already hav 'em, thus I think the -vo x11 i use is wrong for my display card...

in .mplayer/config the only relative option I have is
fs=yes # Enlarges movie window to your desktop's size.

In .mplayer/gui.conf I have:
vo_driver = "xv"
load_fullscreen = "yes"

and it works with my nvidia gf4
