I’ve got a problem playing Divx-Files in an avi-Container which have widescreen content, but in a letter box format (4:3 with black borders at top and bottom): They don’t fill the whole screen of my widescreen tv, as you can see in the attached pictures. With iTunes content, everything works fine. Since I depend on the format those letter box files are given to me (they come from an online pvr service), I’d like to crop the picture in Mplayer or zoom in so the picture fills the whole screen.
Without Borders (iTunes):
Perhaps I can do that with “arguments” I give the Mplayer. Does anybody know the right syntax? I’ve tried “-vf crop=”, but that didn’t work: The files didn’t start playing at all.
Thanks and regards,
