Default Crop the black top and buttom?

Hi All.

When watching a 16:9 movie in 4:3 aspect ratio, I get a black top and bottom in the picture(Letterbox?). Can this be cropped away? It uses rather large amount of space....... :?

What exactly do you mean by cropping? If by cropping you mean just keeping the watchable portion of the movie, then don't use full screen and just resize the movie window to fit the original size of the watchable portion, this way it eliminates the letterbox view. Don't try and resize the video window too much, or you will naturally lose image quality.

When resizing the moviewindow, the black boxes on top and bottom just gets smaller too. I want to cut it away, so that the movie fills all the moviewindow

I'm afraid it's your moviefile itself that has the black areas at top and bottom. They will show in any player. (E.g. try WMP.) If you want to get rid of it, you'll have to do some work on the moviefile itself. E.g. using VirtualDub (by cropping with "null-transform"-filter) or another utility suitable to edit your moviefile.
