You can fix that by making dwm respect size hints. See config.h.

Tiling mplayer vo is actually the coolest feature of dwm, but you do
instead have to live with the possibility of your windows not filling
the screen completely. Render the output of your shells as lines of
variable-width characters instead of fixed-width character grids and
you'll be fine. As an additional benefit, you'll be able to fit more
characters in each line (assuming you use any thin characters). You'll
have to use proper tables (read: tabs) instead of abusing spaces,
