Is there any movie players that let you zoom while its in full screen, i know many dvd players have a ZOOM feature, and i was wondering if any movie players on pc's do, because i hate letterbox/black bars!

let me know!

Preferred Solution: zoom feature in movie player??

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I believe you're talking about aspect ratio, not zoom. Most players have a place to set the aspect ratio, and some codecs have aspect ratio settings. On standard TV's and monitors, generally you use a 4:3 aspect ratio, on widescreens generally you use 16:9.
There are also different stretch settings offered by different software packages. Cyberlink PowerDVD offers CLPV stretching while other software packages have different pixel stretching or doubling techniques, these stretching techniques can have a large impact on the video viewing quality.

I wanted to disable the zoom out and zoom-in option in windows 10.
Is there anyone has an idea how to disable it. Is there any registry setting which helps to disable this feature?
I have tried below but didn't work:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Zoom
and set the value to "1".
It would be great if someone helps me out.

On windows 7 laptop we have  has zoom feature on bottom of page, print size never changes. On this desktop window 7 zoom is on tool bar print size changes every time you go to another page.Anyway to keep it all the same, this desktop is new,mabee something has to be set. Thanks, Paul


First of all - Welcome to BC !
Can you give some details of these computers - make, model and so on - it gives us something to go on.
When you say 'the bottom of the page', do you mean the task bar on the desktop, or at the bottom inside one application or another?  I am not familiar with a zoom control on the task bar but a lot of applications, from image viewers through graphics software to MS Office, have a zoom function. But this almost always uniformly expands or shrinks the complete page, text and everything included. And, more to the point, the zoom control goes wherever the designer of the software decided to put it.

Recently purchased an Acer 5733.

Why will my new higher zoom setting not remain as such, until I wish to reset.

It seems erratic from one web page to another, and often automatically returns to 100%.

Sometimes when I return to previous viewed web pages, the higher setting will have remained.

If I set at 125% I want it to stay there!!

I've been using XP Pro for a few years now. However, on my last re-install I left off ACDSee and was just going to use XP's own settings for viewing photos. I'm now using SP2.

I was certain that in the 'filmstrip' setting for photos there was a 'Zoom IN/OUT' option - am I wrong? I only have 4 buttons for:-

Previous Image
Next Image
Rotate Clockwise
Rotate Counter Clockwise

I'm using TweakUI + TweakXP Pro 4, I've checked everywhere but I can't find anywhere that the zoom option has been unchecked? Is it there or can I enable it somehow?


A:Zoom feature in 'Filmstrip' of My Pictures?

I found this site:-


It states here that:-

Another new WindowsXP applet is the Picture & Fax Viewer. To view files as you would in a slide show, just right-click on any graphics file and select "Preview". The Viewer applet will open and the controls at the bottom allow you to navigate, zoom, copy, etc. This is a very quick and useful feature that is always available in Windows Explorer.

Sure enough, all the icons that I'm sure were always there appear in this window *but* I would like them there ALL the time when viewing in filmstrip mode - is it something simple I'm overlooking here?

How do I disable the pinch zoom on my Lenovo G50 touchpad?  It is driving me crazy and I can't find any instructions in the Lenovo user guide or help button.  Can anyone help?

I bought a E520. I am not liking the touchpad on this thing. It hangs up and does not respond a lot of times. The biggest thing that irks me is that my screen will zoom in and out when I run my finger along the touchpad or when tapping it. I know you can use the "pinch" with two fingers to zoom in and out but mine will zoom with just a tap of one finger. Someone must know how to disable the zoom feature. Can you describe in detail to me how to do that? I called Lenovo support about it and the guy said it might be a software or hardware problem and told me to take it into a repair facility. There must be a way in settings to turn that off. I just want the touchpad to work normally, as in move the cursor around.. thats it, nothing more. Can someone help me with this??

A:How to turn off zoom feature on touchpad

I have an HP dv3 laptop with a synaptics touchpad. Swiping the left edge of the touch pad causes programs which have a zoom capability to zoom in and out. There is no documentation from HP or Synaptics or Microsoft that I have been able to find which even acknowledges that this feature even exists. I would like to turn the feature off because I keep activating it by accident, but I cannot find a setting anywhere. Perhaps there is a registry setting I can change?

A:Want to disable left edge zoom feature

Some additional information: the pointer becomes the crossed lines with arrows that I associate with Move during the swipe and then after the release the shrinking circle occurs as if I had pressed the CTRL key to locate the cursor. The advertised way of doing a zoom with the keypad is to hold the CTRL key and swipe the right edge.

So I need to a image viewer/editor with "Scroll to Zoom" feature. Basically when I scroll, the image should be zoomed instead of moving to the next picture.
Irfanview had this feature but its not there anymore. Or maybe I am not able to find it.

I know that Ctrl+Scroll will produce the result. But I need it to zoom with only the Scroll button.

So do you know of any program/software that has this feature. Any suggestions?

OK so I want to use Zoom Player and first I downloaded it and installed everything provided in the Install Center or whatever installation. No sound.

I had changed the sound output to my Realtek speakers. Nothing.

I tried the default directsound device. Nothing.

So I tried installing the K-Lite Codec Pack. It required several uninstallations but then I installed it fully.

Still no sound.

I found help on this forum indicating that the volume for Zoom Player may be muted in my mixer settings (Windows 7 X64).

Edit: I am trying to play MP4 files downloaded from Youtube.

It was not.

What the HECK is going on here and why isn't this problem automatically solved by Install Center????

I have used Zoom Player in the past and all that was necessary was installing the K-Lite codecs.

By the way, the people at InMatrix are total jerks because I indicated to them that if I got my problem solved I would buy the paid version of Zoom and still they do not respond.

Hi! I used Zoom Player Max for my video needs (I love CCCP, but I'm quite used to Zoom, thank you). Given that, I use the Install Center to make sure that I have all the Codecs necessary to watch most my videos. Mostly, I see that my player uses Haali to open MKVs, and FFDShow Audio to make the sound.

Unfortunately, I noticed that with some of my videos, I get really low volume. I haven't been able to see a pattern, but I honestly think there is one. It might be with the bitrates, or whatever is used (I honestly don't know the difference between AAC, AC3 or whatever). In fact, I also thing it might have something to do with the Dolby 5.1 settings? I use a pair of 2.0 Stereo Speakers with the default Win7 Driver. This isn't an intermittent issue--it's consistent. Meaning that if the audio plays normally in one batch of videos from the same encoder, then it will always play normally. However, some of my videos (for example, a particular anime series fansub), will be encoded in such a way that it will always play really really soft.

Please help!

Ever since I've updated to the most recent version of windows all the Video files will no longer asscociate to the various file types withing the Zoom icon library. It seems just to asscociate all to one particular Icon which is the main Zoom player Icon.

I've done a sfc/scannow to repair any problems and I've used a little app that is supposed to specifically associate ZP types.

A:Zoom Player File type associations

Hi, I 'll guess what's happening is this:
Perhaps in (say) win 7, if you set the associations from with Zoom player, icons were set appropriately.

From Win 8 on, associations cannot be set by programs- they can only register themselves as capable of handling the file types they do.

When you set the association from Settings or the Control panel or Open With, you are setting that association with the main executable.

If you wished, you could achieve this by hand, or by writing an appropriate script, I would think. But is it worth the time?

I would be very grateful for some help on a problem I have been experiencing lately. Sometimes when I close down either DivX or Zoom Player, my PC freezes - when I am able to load Task Manager, it shows that either DivX.exe or zplayer.exe is eating about 99% cpu. After a minute or two, I am able to kill the process and everything returns back to normal. It doesn't happen with all my video files but mostly with avi's and mpeg's...however, it doesn't always happen to the same files so I don't think there's a problem with the files themselves. This has only been happening for a couple of weeks and all my video files have been on my PC for much longer without this problem....(all files are being played direct from hdd rather than cd drive).

I have tried reinstalling both players but the problem still happens intermittently.

I read somewhere that removing the default file association for avi files in the registry helps with CPU issues with Explorer so I have tried that but it didn't help with this particular problem.

I regularly scan my PC for viruses, spyware, trojans, registry problems and all other potential hazards and at present, it is problem free - apart from the player issue.

Any help or advice would be very cool...

Many thanks,

I missed the season premier of "Terminator; The Sarah Conner Chronicles". I could install a movie player from Fox and watch the episode but, I was wondering if anyone else had installed it, and what were their thoughts on it. I have 768Kb DSL so I'm not sure if that would be fast enough for this application. What thinkest thou(s)?

It seems every network has it's own movie player software. I also wondered if they would play well together?

A:Fox Network Movie Player

I doubt there will be any conflicts. I have not installed it though. I don't have much else to do tonight (well that I want to do at least) so I can try it on one of my machines.

I think the 768 will be ok.. I highly doubt the networks would 'stream' anything above 512.

Update: I figured IE7 would be the most compatible with this, so I tried that. Would not open the video, just sat there spinning. So I tried FF3, it installed an extension. Watching now, the quality is about like Netflix's streaming. I am dling at faster than 768 while playing this.. but its probably just dling fast to buffer...

Full screen isn't fullscreen either, it is just 'full window'

Edit2: Turns out they have a little bar that supposedly leads up to "HD". Mine sits between HD and 2 blocks below HD. For a bit just a min ago, it dropped down to 1 block, and the screen got really pixelated. So it could be similar to Netflix where I believe the speed is somewhat dynamic. Here is what my downstream has shown during 3 different times..

[19:51:31] <sngx1275> Current Downstream: 192.98 KBytes/s

Im creating a website which will contain videos of my work. Because im aware there are compatability problems between people using .wmv / .avi and everything else I thought it would be best if all the movies where in the same format. Now, im sure these exist because i've seen them very many places. Im after a Flash Video player, that I can put my .avi / .mpg files in and then I can export a .swf file that I can put on the website. This .swf file will play the avi / mpg video. I have a brief actionscript/flash knowledge but im assuming I can find this somewhere and just add my own videos to it? I tried to make my own player, only problem being that im assuming the whole swf file would load before it would start to play, i'd prefer it if the user could see the progress of the movie, and also start streaming straight away.

It would basically be like the GoogleVideo and YouTube video players that are embedded in many websites now - I dont want to use them because, well they dont link back to the original content and the quality of the videos tends to be poor.

Any help greatly appreciated - lemme know if you've got any questions
