Thanks for the response Wesley,
I have tried it with only the full screen option. I've found places
that insinuate the -zoom option is only available using software
rendering which explains why it only works for x11 video mode. A friend
suggested using VLC instead of Mplayer for a variety of different
reasons and it seems to play video full screen without any issues.
Until I see a significant advantage with Mplayer or a shortcoming with
VLC I think I'll stick with it.

I've had problems with recent versions of Mplayer being choppy. I
upgraded my system a few weeks ago and used the latest NVIDIA drivers
and that problem has seemed to have gone away.
Anyway, have you tried Mplayer with just the "-fs" (fullscreen) option?
This seems to work fine for me, and produces a full-screen video from a
$ mplayer -fs -vo xv [filename]
