If I create a portable media file, is there a way to 'zoom' the image, and remove some of the letterbox, and sacrifice the some of the width of the image?
Not currently. Does your player not have a zoom or magnify function that would help? Maybe others that use these modes more than I do will chime in with a suggestion. Welcome to the forum, BTW.
sadly my player (insignia) does not have this functionality, and to add insult to injury. The player has audio sync proplems with avi's created with the xvid/mp3. It will play wmv's correctly but FAB doesn't have that functionality currently..But oh well... Things change quickly around here. The software is changing day to day.
