Since mplayer is a pretty versitile player in Linux, I tried it in Windows 2000. I tried version "MPlayer 1.0rc1 Windows" and a GUI interface called "MPlayer 1.0rc1 Windows GUI". Both were downloaded from:
This particular version has an aspect ratio problem where every file you play is horizontally stretched, so it looks abnormally wide. I don't see any aspect ratio controls in this GUI, so I guess it is what it is and there is no fixing it.
I'm not sure if the problem lies in the GUI interface or the version of mplayer for Windows. Any idea if Windows version 1.0rc1 has a known problem with aspect ratio?
If the problem is the GUI interface, is there a better Windows GUI for Mplayer someone would recommend?
