Default is this possible?

hi there
occasionally I run across a video file that has a watermark or logo at the bottom, in the usually black 'letterbox' area. Its not terrible, but it does detract a bit from the viewing experience. Is there any way I can use bsplayer to crop off that bit as it plays?

cheers,
grape

BSPlayer is not videoediting program. Use VirtualDubMod:

I dont mean editing the vid file, just covering a part of it while it plays, kind of like a black always-on-top mask. Anyone know if this exists?

Step 1:
Put the subtitle over the desired part. (rightclick, subtitles, subtitle position, select)
Step 2:
Disable transparent font. This way the subtitle is printed over a black box.

you can try and use the custom pan&scan feature...
eventually you should be able to have the watermark out of the screen, but I guess quite a large part of the picture will be cropped (and I assume you don't want that)...

following adicoto's suggestion, I suppose you could create a subtitle file with only one line containing only spaces and display duration = length of movie.
I don't say this will work, but it's probably worth a try

Yes, if you don't have a subtitle file for the movie try using something like that:
{0}{150000}. .
Copy this line in a .txt file and it should work.
