    So when I had Visa, all my Mkv, avi files played widescreen. Black bards on bottom and top. Yeah..you know. I liked it.
    But now when I have windows 7, each of my players play my videos full screen, like a square box that stretches when I go full screen. I use VLC or Media player classic. I ratther use media player classic because it plays mkv files in better quality.
    So my question is, anybody know whats the problem? I'm asking for help, to see how can I play my videos in widescreen again.

    I tried it right now. I don't like it. It changed the subtitles and some other stuff I don't like. And it doesn't go wide screen ethir.
    I think the widesceren issue has something to do when I upgraded to windows 7. Is there anywhere that I can edit video effects? Or somewhere that might say aspect ratio locked or something?

    If you can't fix it with the slider bar when you run Resolution from the start menu, you have to fix it from your graphics card display custom control utility.

    You'll need to google Radeon graphics customize and find your utility

    so you had the same problem I had? I don't know..I was on the phone with my friend, and we were checking all the seetings.. I have no idea where to see where aspect ratio can go. I'll show you a screen shot.

    I don't know if you regonize the settings on CCC. I don't know where I can find the setting for that. So the issue here is the video card if thats what you're saying?

    When you used to be able to get full screen, wasn't it pixalated alittle?

    If a video is is only say 320 x200, you;ll never get a good quality out of it due to the size of the video.

    Am I on track here?

    My videos are all the same when they played wide screen before. 1280x720. blue ray files and all that. I'm thinking its the video card thats not making it side screen? is that the problem here?

    So, are you saying the videos are actuall blue-ray DVD's?

    Actually blue-ray can go up to 1920×1080 resolution.

    Some of my videos are blue ray. Thats just for example. And yeah I know. But still no wide screen at all. I tried everything to give me those black side bars on top and bottom. Do you think its a video card setting?

    will you be able to tell me how to enable GPU scaling? Theres a point locked to where it says "Scale image to full panel size."

    Shouldn't I maintain aspect ratio?
