Bug#699393: gnome-mplayer: starts with zero height canvas instead of normal (1:1) size

I noticed that gnome-mplayer often starts playing a video with
an awkward zero-height canvas (== the area where the video is played,
I am not sure of the correct name for this part of the GUI window...).
As soon as I start the program:
$ gnome-mplayer some-video.ogv
the canvas seems to have the correct width, but zero height.
Hence the video is played, but is not visible.
If I press [Ctrl+1], the canvas is resized to the video original
width and height and everything works fine.
Other resize commands are also able to fix this problem.
However, I think that gnome-mplayer should start with a canvas
having the correct width and height for the video being played,
without waiting for the user to hit [Ctrl+1].
I experience this issue with some videos, but not with all the ones
One example video where I can reproduce this issue is
(which is the Ogg Video version of the 1902 silent film by Georges
Méliès, currently in the public domain:
Please fix this issue and/or forward my bug report upstream.
Thanks for your time.
