Can we get a setting to auto stretch 4:3 video ether on the app or the server itself. I know we have a setting to do it, but It gets tiresome to have to stretch the video each time you play something.

Hi, yes it's not a bad idea.

Exactly. Zooming in if its got black bars (ie, a widescreen content in a 4:3 video) is fine, but stretching native 4:3 content is foolish.

Everything will look distorted. A simple way to see this is to check for anything that should be a perfect circle.

So just to be clear on subject.was not asking for this to be default. Just want the choice to auto stretch or zoom both would be great

It'd be tough to autodetect even the zooming for black bars. To set zooming/stretching as a default... that's just a mess in the waiting.

The server can tell the aspect ratio of the file .so then it needs to tell it to stretch on a 4:3 video. Not to compair because I know kodi is totally different. But kodi can do this.
