In the meantime, if any of you have such a stream available and could check what happens with the latest madVR + DSPlayer (does 4:3 get stretched? What does madVR OSD say? etc.), I think it could be helpful.

It looks like a madVR scaling/black bar detection issue (just an uneducated guess) that started happening after one of the recent updates. I initially thought it could be DSPlayer because I must have updated both at the same time and the DSPlayer changelog mentioned something about updated zoom functionality.

i think that you should try with this madVR build madVR08821.zip that it's before any zoom control options was added

I finally had a little time to test and this indeed seems to be a DSPlayer bug that got introduced with the Oct 4th release.

1) Latest DX11 Kodi test build (from the Kodi site) + DVDPlayer = Normal view mode doesn't force stretch 4:3 into 16:9
2) Latest "regular" Kodi build + DVDPlayer = Normal view mode doesn't force stretch 4:3 into 16:9
3) DSPlayer of any build before Oct 4th + any madVR version = Normal view mode doesn't force stretch 4:3 into 16:9
4) Both DSPlayer builds from October + madVR (any version, incl. the one aracnoz helpfully linked) = Normal view mode force stretches 4:3 into 16:9 (or rather retains the picture in 16:9 ratio and doesn't switch to 4:3 ratio even for a second anymore, at least not in the very latest DSPlayer build - the behavior is as if no aspect ratio change happened).

The changelog for the Oct 4th release says something about "Fixed Kodi Zoom options", which I assume is somehow related to this zooming bug?

BTW, I can't launch the stream using DVDPlayer from the DSPlayer Kodi build, it always starts in DSPlayer - seems like another bug? I don't think mediasconfig needs altering to be able to manually launch DVDPlayer from within Kodi (?).
