I really don't know why; it opens in a default right now, but not 16:9. If I
want 4:3, I just select 4:3. Or if I want 16:9, I select that aspect ratio.
In fact that is what I do, every time I play a movie. It seems appropriate
to have it open in 16:9, since that is my choice every time I play a movie.
16:9 almost fills the screen except for about one half inch at top and
Wouldn't a movie made in 4:3 be changeable to 16:9 if you wanted to do that,
I really don't know a lot about this, but I do change to 16:9 when I play
movies, and it seems wasteful to have to click the mouse so many extra times
to get what I always want.
I choose MPlayer too, because it has the aspect ratio feature. That too seems
wasteful in terms of mouse clicks. Each time I open a movie, I have to
right-click on the title, then choose 16:9 for aspect ratio. It would be
better just to click on the title of the movie and have it open as I wish,
without having to make so many choices. If it is a 4:3 aspect ration,
nothing prohibits me from clicking on that choice, the few times it happens.
