RE: Stretch 4:3 video to 16:9 (wide screen) in WMP 11
No answers? I encountered such issue also. I have other media player
softwares. They can work well to show my video clips which were recorded in
16:9. However, wmp 11 just can not do it. It always showes in 4:3.
I searched in the web. It was said that there was an option in
tools->options->performance->advance-> unselect something like "Allow full
screen control". But it was not true in wmp 11. I didn't try in wmp 9 or 10.
Maybe you can try. I just give up wmp 11 and use the alternative one which
was really powerful for all kinds of video formats!
