Aspect ratio Settings
#1
Is there support to add a zoom function for specific aspect ratios to the player settings? I have found this to be a better solution personally than the minimize black bar stretch which i stay clear of since it visibly stretches the image. The zoom function however works great with all my films.

On my big screen,  I find 1.09 zoom to give the closest theater feel. 

Trade off is that I've had to set my entire library to zoom 1.09 through the 'Do this for all of my videos settings' and for all full screen content i have to manually go in and set zoom back to 1.00, which presents more of a hassle with TV shows. I think a slider for each major aspect ratio could be a solution.

Zoom
Aspect ratio slider:
21:9 = 1.09
16:9 = 1.00
4:3 = 1.00

Are you aware of the pixel ratio setting? For me finding the right pixel ratio setting seems to have worked for all aspect ratios.

Couldn't see any easy way to delete posts on this forum so I'll mention that I have discovered that setting the player "Minimise back bars" global setting to 0% removes for me the need to counteract that stretching by increasing the "Pixel aspect ratio" setting available during playback.

Thanks. Tried the Pixel aspect with your suggestion and it does stretch the image horizontally. At least with the image slightly zoomed it's not super noticeable when watching TV shows but sincerely think it's a better solution to get more screen real estate without compromising the image.
