Your welcome! I still primarily use MPlayer as first choice when watching
videos, and even started to use a released MPlayer version via Ubuntu

There have been just a few commits to vo_xv.c since the release of
1.3.0, but I did not see anything obviously problematic. An older commit
pertained to setting the background color (according to the commit log),
but I did not look at that patch. But then I do not know that code at all.

It seems as if the borders are actually drawn, but not in black, but
using some other memory contents, sometimes from the video, sometimes
from the root window ("desktop"). It does not look as if unitialized
memory is copied.

Since the commits since 1.3.0 pertained to formats: on the 18.04 system
MPlayer reports "VO: [xv] 1280x720 => 1280x720 Planar YV12".

Compile tested only, since I didn't dare boot it.
