Pan-and-scan fails on Radeon mobility card..
Please can someone advise me...

I’m using the latest version of BSPlayer with a laptop pc containing a ATI Radeon mobility card and tv-out. I’d also like to be able to use the pan-and-scan option to zoom in on cinemascope movies. Here’s what I’ve discovered…

Using old rendering method… picture on tv and pc appears laggy in fast moving shots, but pan-and-scan on tv works ok.

Overlay mode 1… picture looks great, but there is a large border on right of tv screen and pan-and scan does not work.

Overlay mode 2… picture looks great, but again no pan-and scan on tv.

RGB option… all give errors

Is there a setting where I can get a good picture and pan-and scan on the tv working too? Might perhaps an earlier version of BSPlayer work for me?

Thanks for your help.

Theater Mode
FYI, in ATI Clone/Theater Mode, it's impossible to 'Pan&Scan' the movie with any media player I tested. (Theater Mode 'catches' the movie direct from the DirectShow Filters and not from the media player. well not exactly but something like this)
Try another mode (TV-out as primary display) ... or find a DS Filter that resizes the movie and tell us

The solution...
Thanks for your advice, its helped me find the solution :)

I downloaded a copy of the ffdshow filter from here:

(I would recommend the alpha version since it has many more features)

The filter allows you to crop and resize the picture (plus many other options) and it works on a TV, with ATI Theatre Mode, and BSPlayer overlay mode 1.

Enjoy :)
