  • Aspect Ratio Problem with 21:9 display

    To whom it may concern,

    Recently I bought LG 34UM95, it is 3440 x 1440 (21:9 ratio) monitor. I have recently upgraded Media Player to the latest and I found there is display aspect ratio problem.

    I can play BR in windows mode but when I try to play it in full screen mode. it is distorted, tried to adjust the aspect ratio but no use. somehow the video stays in bottom and stretched but not to the far end.

    Please help!

    Hi Zori, Maximizing the screen will not fill it out, F11 or select full screen from the drop menu will fill a 1920x1080 display edge to edge. I'll include a couple screen shots to demonstrate. If that doesn't work for you I would try setting the computer's display resolution to 1920x1080 for watching BR movies.

      It would appear that DVDFab Media Player does not offer a dedicated 21:9 display option.

      Such a player would need to be able to display the 'image only' area of a 2.35:1 or 2.40:1 movie and resize/up-scale the resulting vertical pixels (typically 816 or 800 pixels) it to suit the 1440 vertical pixel height of your display...

        I paid to get ver. 2 cause I would like to try out on my new 21:9 monitor, it would be sad for me to change the default resoultion to watch Blu Ray. It does not have any aspect problems when running full screen on my old dell 30" (2560x1600) before (ver 1.x).

        I tried to use Media Player Classic to play those MKV I ripped using DVDFab and they can be played nicely in correct aspect.

          I guess that's because 2560 pixels divided by 1600 pixels equals 1.6 or 16:10. Which is a lot closer to a standard 16:9 TV screen than 21:9...

            Player has the flexibility to accommodate almost any display using the controls shown in the captures. Adjust zoom to make it fit and pixel ratio to get the correct decoded aspect ratio.

              That's interesting...

              I wonder if it might be possible to add some more screen size options in here: -

                You mean screen shape? Should be possible, VLC for example has a more extensive list.
