    One very good feature about MPC-HC ( which many don't know about) is when playing a Video, if there's black space at either the top/bottom or sides you can use the numeric keys to adjust the black out so it goes full screen.

    Eg: 8 & 2 make the video wider /narrower (Vertical) while 4 & 6 make it wider /narrower (horizontal)

    That only goes to full screen, not what I was referring to.

    Here's what I was describing, I changed the 1st before shot and exaggerated the black boarders by pulling them in tapping #2 then #4, then adjusted them out using 6 & 8 as mentioned.

    When in full screen, it can cover the whole screen.

    Have to go out now, but that doesn't work for me, just looses the border than no further changes with any of the number controls mentioned, definitely not altering aspect ratio.

    Maybe I am not pressing the correct buttons.

    Don't see how one can improve on full screen windowshade without distorting the spheres in the movie or whatever.

    Some movies do distort more than others. Usually though you can get a happy medium.

    The biggest effects are on TV's, depending on the size of the TV and aspect ratio, and the films. Some of the movies that are in 16:9 have huge black lines top and bottom, some don't.

    Here for example is a clip, on a Std PC Monitor with the black lines there and removed.

    Each to their own, but there's been some movies that have black bars covering 1/3 of the screen

    With MPC-HC you also have these Height/Width and other adjustments in the right click
    on screen menu. Select "Pan & Scan" for the list of adjustments.

    Never tried it (have a Media PC dedicated under the TV) But looking, according to the following - No it doesn't. https://github.com/clsid2/mpc-hc/issues/359 Someone Suggested Miracast ??
