Hi,

I have a DVD+RW recorded with a home DVD recorder. I recorded a movie from a local TV station. The signal is recorded in 4:3 even the movie is 16:9. So it's recorded 4:3 letterboxed, i.e. 16:9 with black bars at the top and the bottom of the 4:3 frame.

I want to watch this DVD on a wide screen monitor. Now the AVS DVD player displays the movie as 4:3, with additional black bars on the right and the left. Now I have a black frame around the movie.

Is it possible to zoom the movie, so it fits on the display/monitor? Maybe I didn't found the setting for this...

Hope you understand.

Hello,

Please lanch AVS DVD Player and play the video. Then Alt + Enter for full view mode>right click>Aspect Ratio

There will be following variants:

1. Auto - use this option to let the AVS DVD Player select the aspect ratio automatically.

2. 4:3 - use this option to set the aspect ratio fit 4:3 screen.

3. 16:9 - use this option to set the aspect ratio fit 16:9 wide screen.

4. 1.85:1 - use this option to set the aspect ratio fit 1.85:1 wide screen.

5. 2.35:1 - use this option to set the aspect ratio fit 2.35:1 wide screen.

6. Custom Ratio - use this option to set the custom aspect ratio. See the Preferences section for more detail on this.

In Custom Ratio... - you can set the custom aspect ratio. You can select the ratio of X (width) to Y (height) of the video image and click the Apply button to accept the changes.

Thanks for your reply, but this will not help.

To illustrate my question I have attached a JPG image with 3 screenshots.

1: This is the original video file format from that DVD. It's 4:3 with black bars on the top and the bottom.
2: This is, how the video is displayed by the player.
3: This is, how I would like to see the video on my screen. For this, I need to zoom up the video.

Is this possible or do I need to use another player software?

Thanks.
Frank

Hi Frank,

In fact, you need to reconvert your video using AVS Video Converter and change Aspect Ration to fit your video for your display/monitor.


So, please:
1. Launch AVS Video Converter and choose your video file
2. Click the << Advanced button in the main window
3. Click the Aspect Correction tab
4. Use the Crop function to get rid of black areas.

Hi,

thanks for your info.

To use the Video Converter to remove the black bars directly leads me back to my other topic, where I have the problem to open a VRO file ;-)

Nevertheless, it would be much easier if the player could zoom, as some other free players can. You should consider to add such a zoom function to a future version of the player.

But it's no big problem. I will use another free player for this videos.

How can Video Convertor 6 end up with 4X3 aspect ration every time, regardless of the 16X9 I start with?
And how do I fix this? The conversion is very efficient; and I would like to use it if only the final result looked right.

Hi,

I was loading a Video_TS.IFO and the VOB Files. Modifying the Video and saving it. The result was a the modyfied Video but only in 4:3 aspect ratio. The original iis in 16:9.
Is this the a fact, or I'm doing something wrong?

Hello,

gerhard.schoe...:
I was loading a Video_TS.IFO and the VOB Files.


Please try to load only the Video_TS.IFO file. That is possible, that some VOB file, publicity for example, is in 4:3 aspect correction and that may cause the mismatch.

So, try to repeat the procedure, choosing Video_TS.IFO file and inform me about the result.

I have the same problem, I think. I have a source file (MKV file, (Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 720x396 (80:33) 23.98fps)) And no matter what setting I change, I can't get it to NOT stretch it vertically....

Did you ever get it sorted out?

Hi,
I'm not sure that it is the same problem, because as far as we here at AVS4YOU know AVS Video ReMaker currently does not support reading of MKV files :-)
Please inform us if this is wrong or you are really using another AVS4YOU program - AVS Video Converter 6 or AVS Video Editor 4. Please, specify the program version as well and the output video format that you save the video to.
Best regards.

Aspect correction options will be available when you click on Advanced and choose Aspect Correction tab. You can learn more on how the aspect ratio for a particular format can be changed following this link to AVS Video Converter Online Help.
