Force Original AR
Is it possible to set BSPlayer always to use Original aspect ratio? I have problems with DVD-R movies that when i launch movie,AR is wrong and i have to check 'Original' from aspect ratio menu. "Keep aspect ratio" is checked.

Re: Force Original AR
If you use ffdshow to decode MPEG-2 video, aspect ratio setting will be ignored. Elecard MPEG-2 decoder will pass the recomended aspect ratio (either 4:3 or 16:9) to the player.

Maybe you have enabled "remember window size"?

I use GPL MPEG-1/2 DirectShow Decoder Filter.

I disabled "remember window size",but there was no affect.

"Keep aspect ratio" only ensures that the ratio is kept while resizing the playback window.

Aspect Ratio -> "Original" should return the physical resolution of your video without any AR adjustments made by BSPlayer.

Maybe your decoder is resampling the video to the correct aspect ratio but still carries the AR property along in the DirectShow filtergraph making BSPlayer do resizing when none is needed?

What is the physical ratio of your MPEG-2 video files (720*576, 720*480, any other)? What is the [aproximate] resolution your files get displayed? What is the resolution you want them displayed (720*404)?

That's lot of questions, but people, like the author of this very recent post, manage to get files of very odd resolutions.

I don't exactly know,how the picture should look like. When i open DVD-R movie,picture looks like wrong,it's a little bit shrinked and when i check "Original" AR,it looks much better,but same time it looks like a little bit streched. :roll: Movie is 2.35:1, 16:9 PAL. Resolution is 720*576. I have PAL TV 28".

Can someone else who has DVD-R movies; first open movie,then check original aspect ratio and compare those two ARs? which is correct AR?

Ah, your TV makes the difference. Never tried this type of device.

What do you mean?

EDIT: well, i think that AR goes right when i check 4:3 from Aspect ratio menu. Or at least it looks like most decent. "original" is little bit too stretched.

I have only connected CRT monitors to computers, not LCD TVs (28"). The TV is probably doing some assymetric scaling of its own.

"Original" in this case is 3.75:3.
