Crop Video in WMP

vbimport

#1

I have a 16:9 avi (divx with ac3) file. When playing in windows media player 11, black bars appear above and below the video (which kind of a irritates me). I do not crop the video when encoding it as I have a wide screen TV (and a divx player to play it on TV). I prefer Windows Media Player to anything else simply because it supports AC3Filter which gains (and uses dynamic compression on) the low volume audio tracks. Also I find WMP integrates with Windows XP only too well (you must have observed it) and is the easiest player to use. So please suggest a video cropping utility for windows media player 11, when playing the video.

Thanks, gave VLC a try. Works very good and not only that but has also options to crop the picture to a variety of sizes. Lets see what performance it gives as I work forward.

Use the ORIGINAL source and create a new divx.
