Pan-scan's strange relationship?
I have a 704x576 video and when i run it in "full screen" mode, it's displayed as a frame but there are black-backgrounded edges on left/right and top and my desktop resolution is 1024x768.

So, i was always doing "pan-in" to fit the screen but although "remember pan-scan settings" is selected, when i re-open the video, everytime i have to do re-"pan-in" to fit.

Yesterday, i found out a checkbok named "cut top and bottom of video in full screen mode" and i thicked it. After that the video is ran with strected and fit on the screen as i wanted. So i do not need to do pan-in anymore.

So, what is the relationship of pan-in, "remember pan scan settings" and "cut top and bottom of video in full screen mode" ?

Wrong, the image didn't stretched as you want. Just that what's on top and bottom it's no onger there, it's "displayed outside the screen". This option is somehow similar to a zoom, that stick the left and right edges to the screen and fit the image on top and bottom by not displaying what's more then the screen edge. Similar to 16:9 TV "zoom" function, used to avoid putting black bars on left and right when you are waching a 4:3 image.

Hi adicoto,
However, i was having to do pan-in to fit the whole screen. But after selected that tickbox, problem has gone away automatically.

But the thing i did not understand is: Although "remember pan-scan settings" were selected, why had i have to do pan-in "everytime" i run the video which is smaller than screen resolution as well?

Seems like your Pan-Scan don't get remembered because "cut top and bottom" has nothing to do with Pan-Scan. If you get black bars on both left/right and top/bottom you might have "don't resize video in full screen" checked. I would uninstall delete all settings and reinstall the latest BSPlayer and see if it goes away if you have this problem for all the videos you play.

Anyhow, if you had "Remember Pan-Scan settings" selected, your custom pan-scan should indeed have been remembered. That being said however, it may also depend on your settings under playlist's preferences:
(rightclick >) Options > Preferences > Playlist > "Pan-scan".
P.S.: What version of BS.Player are you using at present?

I think that Pan-Scan settings are remembered only if in Playlist options you set Pan-Scan to "As previous" :roll:
(absolutely NOT "Default")
