    When i rent or buy a movie from Blockbuster, Hollywood video etc, and i play the movie on my PC using Windows Media Player 11 or Real Player no matter what i do, i cannot remove the letterbox format, i do not like the letterbox format. With my stand alone player it can be removed, but i can't do it on my PC. Does anybody know what software i can use that has the option of removing the letterbox, format? Thanks.

    VLC, MPC, The KM Player. Probably everything except Window Media Player, really. Although why you would want to throw away so much of the image is a mystery to me. When you go to the cinema, do you put a box around your face to make the image square ?

    To answer the question without trying to offend you like some,

    Are you wanting to make it pan and scan which takes away the sides or are you wanting to stretch the image? If you have a widescreen monitor, this will fill the screen.

    I am looking to pan and scan, and as far as the guns1inger guy is concerned, it's easy to offend when your behind a computer screen. But to answer his question my monitor is to small to enjoy letterbox. At least he gave me options as well as the insult. Thanks for responding Anakin!

    guns1inger, I have seen your posts on here for a while and until now I have kept quiet. You are very knowledgable and no one will deny that, but stop talkin to people as if they are stupid and below you.

    You are not above anyone here so please stop talking down to people to build up your own ego. People are getting sick of it. We are all here for the same reason and that is discuss digital video, not to be mocked and made to look stupid by you.

    Anakin thanks for sticking up for me, but like i said, he is behind a computer screen, he would not talk to me like that in person, nor probably to anyone else for that matter.
