I hadn't noticed, but you are right; the mono option is gone.
I have been a big fan of VLC for years, but just last week when VLC wouldn't work properly in PC-BSD, I tried SMPLayer and was very impressed. It is a very well thought out front end to MPlayer and still has the 'on the fly' mono option. Just FYI.
