Resize to screen resolution problem

Post by mmTalish33 on Wed Jan 22, 2014 2:56 am

I have Dell XPS 15 L502x with Windows 7 home premium x64.

I have set resize & aspect ratio to always resize to screen resolution.
Here are my settings



some videos are resizing as want them to
for example here is a video before resize



now, the same video after resize. (this type of resize which resizes the video to fit all screen area i want for all videos)



i have some videos which are not giving me the result i want

for example this video
before resize



and the same video after resize



So, how i can get all videos resized to fit my laptop screen.
Regards.

If you use MPC-HC instead of WMP then you can easily resize the video.

Resize in MPC-HC works by using the keys on the numeric keypad. Those are the calculator keys at the far right side of the keyboard. On a small laptop keyboard there are often special key combinations (using Fn key) to replicate those numeric keys. The regular number keys, the ones above the letters, do NOT work for this purpose!

1 = zoom out, 9 = zoom in
4 = reduce width, 6 = increase width
2 = reduce height, 8 = increase height
5 = reset back to original size

If you want to resize using ffdshow, then you need to specify a manual aspect ration value. The value should be equal to the aspect ration of you screen. 1366/768 = 1.778646

Judging by the input size of that second video, those black bars are encoded in the video itself. You won't be able to get rid of them unless you crop them during playback.

Why anyone would want to watch something in the wrong aspect ratio is beyond me anyways.

i specified the aspect ratio you gave, but it didn't work.

If the video already contains the black bars, then they will continue to exist after resizing with ffdshow.

The resizing options in MPC-HC that I mentioned above do work in that situation.

You can even automatically stretch the video to full screen with this option:
MPC-HC menu > View > Video Frame > Stretch to Window
