Maybe you accidentally switched to "Movie mode" (by depressing [M])?
Try if depressing [M] or the number [5] on numeric keyboard "repairs" it.

that might have started it all .. while fibbling around with the buttons

but it didnt correct anything to press 5 or M ..

Can you upload a picture of your screen?
(And please also mention which BS.Player version/build you're using.)

I've seen this in MPlayer2.exe one time. Do you have ffdshow installed?

Re: black border
Does the problem occur also when ffdshow is not loaded?

im not sure..
how do i unload ffdshow ? do i have to uninstall

Re: black border
You could play a format that is not handled by ffdshow or turn off a specific format on the program's config page. This way we can rule out ffdshow as source of the problem.

FF is able to 1) resise and crop, 2) show letterbox for subtitles, 3) do perspective correction. Sometimes these settings become wrong and it won't display the original size anymore no matter what you do.

ok , yes i managed to play a film clip without ffdshow loading

But does this happen with every movie you play? To upload a picture of your screen simply upload it to imageshack or if you want directly to BSplayer site (when posting click on Add an Attachment)
To take a screenshot press P on bsplayer or (it depends on your rendering mode) Print Screen on your keyboard and paste it to Paint, or with an external device (camera, mobile phone with camera, etc.)
Have you enabled the "Extend picture to" in BSplayer's Video rendering preferences window?

If you pan-in (O or CTRL+O) does it change?
If you play that video with other players the black border is gone or not?

hi, yes it happens with every movie and all extensions.

WMP 11 plays movies without this problem.

i save a picture like you said and this was a surprise , the picture saved correctly without any border , but when i watch movies it has a border still on the bottom (not necessery to attach picture now as it was accurate)

when i pan out very much . the image is not centered there is more border on the bottom than on top

Have you tried all the suggestions made by the other users here?
Extend picture feature is enabled? If so disable it..

Change rendering mode and check the video card settings...

You can also try to delete (or move) BSplayer's settings file, this way at next startup BSplayer will reset his settings and if it's a problem related to BSplayer settings it will be gone...
You can find it under the following paths:

Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\BSplayer\BSplayer.xml

Windows Vista
C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\BSplayer\BSplay er.xml

Or in C:\Program Files\Webteh\BSplayer\BSplayer.xml if you choose to place it in installation dir
