Default Aspect Ratios

I'm not talking about letterboxing...

For 1.85:1 movies, if you disable aspect ratio's and "fit to screen" it will have the correct anamorphic representation and you will get the full vertical resolution.

For 2.35:1 movies, you need to have black bars on top and bottom in order to conform to a 16:9 display device. The end result will still be anamorphic and you will not lose any vertical resolution.

What I meant was that DirectVobSub would add borders to aspect ratio's > 1.85:1 so that the movie with "fit to screen/no aspect ratio" will be presented in correct anamorphic proportions.

So in essence, it is about "adding bars" to the movie, if the movie is wider that 1.85:1.

All anamorphic DVD's with an aspect ratio > 1.85:1 have also black bars encoded in the movie, for the same reason: Namely to conform to a 16:9 display device.

But since I cannot get DirectVobSub to load under Zoom Player my suggestion was no good nevertheless.

I know the answer ... the question is irrelevant
