How to resize VLC video window size when called from command line?

I’m trying to play a video in VLC using command line, but I don’t want it to play in full size. I trying to pass width and height as instructed at http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Play_HowTo/Advanced_Use_of_VLC#Video_options but it does not change the appearance of the video — it is still played in its original resolution. What am I doing incorrectly?

Here’s the command I’m using:

/Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC –playlist-autostart –video-on-top –width=400 –height=400 ./2013-london-snow.mov

As I understand their online documentation is outdated. Maybe someone could point to the source code of command line interface.
