mplayer shortcut to change aspect ratio while playing video

The following command tells the available commands for keyboard input.

mplayer -input cmdlist

The keyboard shortcuts to mplayer are stored in two locations - /etc/mplayer/input.conf and ~/.mplayer

I prefer editing the /etc/mplayer/input.conf.

Assign shortcuts to aspect aspect ratio switching as follows



a switch_ratio 1.3333 # 4:3
s switch_ratio 0 # switches back to original aspect ratio
b switch_ratio 1.7777 # 16:9 ratio

put his at the end of /etc/mplayer/input.conf.
