    I use Windows Media Player for AVI's (xvid & divx) , I use PowerDVD
    v4 for DVDs and V/SVCDs.

    Problem is with widescreen videos. If I don't have the player
    fullscreened the aspect is all screwed up. Some of the videos don't
    have good resolution, so I can't just fullscreen everything. The
    widescreen is still displayed but in accordance to what the window
    size is, and it doesn't look right. I tried Video LAN but it did the
    same thing.....

    Try Windows Media Player Classic, which allows custom
    zooming within any size window (using the number keys).
    It is a superior player to Windows Media Player, even
    though it is fashioned to LOOK like version 6.4 of that player.

    MPC doesn't have good brightness and contrast adjustment. WMP has
    the best of all the programs. I wish I could figure this out.
