How to set double click to open video in full screen in mplayer

Does anyone know how to set full screen using double click in mplayer. I have installed the latest version of mplayer ( 1.0pre7). Currently, I press "f" to get full screen. I saw the .mplayer/input.conf file...But I didnt know the keyword for double-click . In windows it is "MOUSE_BTN0_DBL". Setting this to vo_fullscreen makes double click work as full-screen. But that works in windows. The same keyword doesnot work in linux. Does ayone know how to set it...???
Any help will be appreciated....

You can change the default action for when that file type is opened in gnome/kde etc. to "mplayer -fs" ie. right clck -> Open With --> Other Application (for gnome)
