DVDPlayer can't zoom the video if there are black bars showing (letterbox) on top and beneath the video.
Case. I have untouched DVD .iso images on my NAS. Sometimes AR is more than 16:9 (1.78:1?) and there are black striped top/bottom = natual. But XBMC Can zoom the pic (panamp;Scan) so that black bars are zoomed out. Both Mpalyer and DVDPlayer can do this with regular DivX files (AR beeingsomewhat 1.78:1 or so =720x304 about) but why this can't be done with DVD (720x576) movies?
