Zoom into the video mplayer


I find out that i can zoom in with e and zoom out with w.
Code:
w panscan -0.1    # zoom out with -panscan 0 -fs
e panscan +0.1    #      in
But the effect of zooming is very small.
So i try to change the value of panscan e.g. to +1.0 in my ./mplayer/input.conf. After changeing the value mplayer zooms in now the max. possible zoomfactor, by pressing e just once.
That's not the effect i what, is there a way to increase the zooming-factor in mplayer?

what gui front end are you using - if one
or are you launching mplayer from the terminal and not using a gui

the Gnome gui is default for the gnome DM

i prefer the QT gui Smplayer

Yes, i'm launching mplayer from the terminal.
My WM is the i3 (tiling window manager).

and you have tried using a setting of "+- 0.2" and "+- 0.3 "

1.0 is a very big jump

Yes, i tried. if i set e.g. "+- 0.2" it just change the interval (how many times i have to press e/w) to zoom in and out. The hole range of zooming in is the same, if i set panscan to "+- 1.0".
With the different that i only have to press w/e only once to zoom the same "distance".
So setting "+- 0.25" and pressing 4 times "w" has the same result than pressing "w" once, with panscan set to "+- 1.0".
Values > "+- 1.0" e.g "+- 2.0" don't work.
