BSPeter is on a distinguished road

Screen options in BSPlayer's full screen mode are:
  1. You can "free resize" the videoscreen using the following key-combinations of [Ctrl]-key together with a numeric key of the numeric key-pad:
    [Ctrl]/[2] : Free resize down
    [Ctrl]/[8] : Free resize up
    [Ctrl]/[4] : Free resize left
    [Ctrl]/[6] : Free resize right
  2. You can move the videoscreen using the same numeric keys, but without [Ctrl]
  3. Then there is the feature to pan-in/out (Default keys: [+]/[-] on numeric key-board).
  4. (Key [5] of numeric keypad can be used to "reset".)
(Note the mentioned keys are only valid unless you've redefined the default key definitions for this under
(rightclick >) Options > Preferences > Key definitions & WinLIRC. There you can define your own keydefinitions seperately for Windowed mode and for Full screen mode.

I think you're correct that BSPlayer does not provide in (direct) reverse options for the "free resize" options as mentioned here-above. All options really concern only "enlarge" (in the direction of the "keypad-arrow-keys", similar to the move-option with the same keys, but without [Ctrl]). A reverse option to "free shrink down/up/left/right" (e.g. allocated to [Alt]+num.keypad [2]/[8]/[6]/[4]) would indeed enhance flexibility.

Or alternatively simply "free adjust screen width up/down" and "free adjust screen height up/down" (in stead of the (up/down-ward or sideward) resize options now available) which in combination with the move options would be an ideal feature.
With respect to the zoom-option (the last two pictures in your post):
did you try the pan-in/out (Num-pad [+]/[-])?

(Of course in window-mode BSPlayer already has such flexibility: provided you have unchecked "Keep aspect ratio" under (rightclick >) "Video", you can change the video-window to any ratio you want.)
