Have seen similar threads before over the months, but am wondering why this DVD rip plays in a small box in the middle of the screen

while this one manages to take pretty much all of the screen

This is in Chrome and in ET. No idea if its a new thing or not. Have only tried these two files so far. Win 10 latest version. Played on same PC as server.

 

Edit - something to do with aspect ratio ?

One is 4:3 and the other is 16:9. so the 4:3 video should have bars on the side.

Although I just played a bluray movie which is 4:3 (Harvey) in Chrome and that was fine and another DVD in 4:3 (High Noon) and that's also fine. Maybe something else I guess. Will have to see if its a one off.

Perhaps it is burned into the video?

Maybe. Don't know how I could tell for sure though.

 

On the other hand, it does seem to be the only one (don't know why as they were all ripped the same way), and by amazing coincidence I ordered a bluray version from Amazon last week, so I should imagine that'll solve it when (if) it turns up...

That is the way it is encoded on the disc.  This is the case with some old non-anamorphic DVDs.

If I'm feeling enthusiastic I should probably run it through Handbrake, hopefully it'll get rid of them (and I always seem to need the space if it gets compressed as well).

 

Though the bluray should arrive soon so maybe not...
