playing movies

i have some movies i put on my n95 8gb and play them using divx player but they all play with the black bars above and below and dont use the full screen, anyone know if thats jus because of the movie file or because of some divx player setting? Is there any other video player that will play them using the full screen?

It's because of the movie and player.

If you were to convert them over to mp4 (you could use Super) then you would be able to change the screen resolution of the movie to 4:3 instead of 6:9 (i think super defaults to do this) and the real media player will make it true full screen.

...but everything will be squashed and distorted. A chacun son gout, as they say, but it's interesting that I struggled for ages to get films to play at the correct aspect ratio while other people are struggling to get them to play at the wrong aspect ratio.
