    OK its so annoying when you download a dvd rip its always like this wide screen thing giving you a really narrow picture and the rest is black when you watch it on a regular monitor. Is there anyway to stretch it out? Make it "full screen"
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    you can change the aspect ratio in BSplayer, but then you would get an out of proportion picture

    There was a nice website that showed the difference between Wide- and Fullscreen but I dont remember which site

    All I can say is that Fullscreen doesnt show the complete picture.

    examples:

    yeah as IKE said full screen doesn't show the full picture therefore it sux so many people don't realize how much gets cut off at the sides...

    when VHS was around and big i remember have originals then having to rebuy VHS tapes that were in wide screen!! they were rare I cant watch a movie without wide screen anymore

    I remember Harry Potter DVDhad to be re released coz the kids wouldn't like the black lines

    ya, like adster said, i cant go w/o widescreen. think perhiphral (spelling!) vision, the full screen is basicall pan & scan which really sux, so much gets cut off. but if you cant adjust to widescreen (although i highly recommend you do, once u get used to it u'll love it) use BSPlayer like Darth said, but be warned that it will be out of proportion and it will strecthed like a mofo, everything will be "taller" than it seems.

    not necessarily. that is true of "pan & scan" full screens. but some full screen movies are "open matte" (or "full frame") versions. in the case of open matte versions, you often see more than the director intended. if you have any mgm dvds with two versions of a movie on 'um, take a look at both sides and compare... there's a good chance that the full screen side is open matte.

    example from anatomy of a murder:

    widescreen (as shown in cinemas): http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDCompare/anatomy/1.jpg

    open matte (usually seen on tv or vhs):
    http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDCom...2.28.10-r1.jpg

    usually the area covered by mattes doesn't really contain anything interesting or important, and removing 'um can make a scene look a bit too wide-open and empty. but james cameron for example has said that he actually prefers the open matte versions of his movies "aliens" and "the abyss," instead of the widescreen versions.
