1.90.1 VLC Aspect Ratio

Postby Henrybbear » Fri Sep 06, 2013 11:43 am

Hi all,

I just upgraded to 1.90.1 after getting fed up with stuttering mkv playback to my Sony Bravia.

Played around with VLC. .mkv playback was much better.

The only problem is the video playback is stretched to fill the whole screen. There is a video scale slider which is set to 1.0 but changing that does nothing.

Is there a custom option i could set to play the files in their native aspect ratio on my bravia?

Thanks

That would most likely be in display settings or video playback settings.

No, within your TV or display or whatever.

Okay, check your VLC Video preferences then. When you scroll down, do you have anything in your force aspect ratio box? If not, give it a go and see what comes out!

Nope no good. Old 4:3 videos still playing stretched to fill my Bravia.

Any ideas?

I got past this problem with Mencoder by entering the expand::16:9 custom setting. Is there anything like this for VLC?
