I hope i'v explaind it clear enough this time :roll:
thanks :)
Your monitor\TV screen does have an AR of 3:4. So, if you have a 16:9 image, to get to fullscreen the player must add black lines, top and bottom. A 4:3 image when gets to full screen it fills the whole screen (as it's 4:3) so there are no black lines top and bottom.
To remain at the same AR (4:3) and have black lines top and bottom you must add also black lines left and right (similar too zoom into the image) But I am sure you don't want to do that, isn't it ?
