    Exactly... I must be missing something. 5 threads here on how to get rid of the black borders and apparently this guy is tring to get them back. What am I missing?

    If you have black bars on the side, it's NOT in full screen.

    I'm talking about when you play videos on a media player. Wide screen. Like a movie. wide screen is better then full screen while your watching a movie right?

    Depends on the format. Haven't you noticed how people's faces are often either fat or thin when stretched or narrowed on a screen that did not fit the format it was created in?

    Widescreen is when the movie fills the entire screen.

    Black bars means it's in letterbox format

    Yeah but you don't always want widescreen if it distorts the video/image

    That's why i previously mentioned it depends on the height and width of the movie.

    If your playing DVD or Blue-ray movies, you should have no problem. And no black bars
