View Full Version : My Videos Stretches Files

2005-07-22, 05:54 AM
I have Gogetem get the trailers for me, and I have quicktime alternative installed to allow me to watch .mov files in gbpvr. I have My Videos set up to let me watch the trailers and while the trailers might be in widescreen format, my videos, stretches them to whatever ratio the tv is. Windows Media Player 10 plays the files in the right ratio. Is this a bug?

no it doesnt, video playback is handled by gbpvr, my vids is just an interface for the files.

try using ffdshow to maintain the video aspect ratio (just search for help on ffshow if you dont know how, theres loads of help for it online, and in this forum).

that seems silly, doesn't it? It works fine in media player, and i've read all over that gbpvr pretty much does what media player can do.

but i'll give it a try and let you know how it goes!

The default is to stretch video to fill the window, which is what I prefer, but you can press F7 to toggle between other aspect ratios.
