When resizing the window, gnome-mpv maintains the video aspect ratio by adding vertical or horizontal black bars. mpv behaves differently, the window always keeps the same shape to avoid wasting space.

Here are videos of the resizing behavior of gnome-mpv and mpv to make it more clear.

I like to have a video playing in a corner of the screen, and it is easier to find the perfect window size with mpv thanks to the way it resizes. However I don't know how difficult it is to implement, or if it could cause issues with some window managers.
Maybe this could be implemented as a distinct feature triggered by a button or keyboard shortcut ? Similarly to the alt+1,2,3 shortcuts, but it would compute the window/video size based on the mouse cursor position ?
