    Windows video player that can fill in blank areas?

    by sengtswan55 ·

    Bit of an odd request, perhaps, but are there any video players where, when a video is a different aspect ratio to your screen, can fill in the blank areas with something like a blurred version of the picture? Since it’s not uncommon for people to have lights around their monitors which do the same thing to the wall behind, it doesn’t seem like it’s impossible for a video player to do the same thing, but it’s not something I’ve seen.

      For VLC Player

      I’d try the crop options. Start playback and then tap the letter C to cycle through available crop options.

      As to fill, that, according to what I’ve seen is accomplished in video editors. I use DaVinci Resolve. Noted at https://www.techradar.com/best/free-video-editing-software
