So each time I want to play a movie, I have to calculate the aspect ratio of the movie, to convert it, to add the aspect ratio in the list, and to select it. It is bit long. Exemple : for a movie that use 1.85 aspect ratio. I have to multiply it by 0.75. The result is 1.3875, then I have to make a fraction with this number = 111:80 Could you add to the software an "original aspect ratio" corrected for 16/9 TV ?
Yes, this feature would be nice.
Meanwhile I calculated most common fractions to add in custom aspect ratios list.

640x272=30:17
640x352=255:187
640x270=16:9

576x240=27:15
576x304=27:19
576x320=27:20
576x256=27:16

512x224=204:119
512x272=24:17
512x288=4:3

608x256=57:32

544x304=51:38
528x288=11:8
704x384=11:8
592x256=111:64

not 100% sure of all
