Mine is a bit like this, i just bought a widescreen monitor, VLC works great, Media Player puts movies at 4:3 even if they arent sometimes. Just avoid using MP for videos, VLC is far better anyway not like ur missing out.

There is an option to change aspect ratio under the tools menu, DVD, settings. You can force aspect ratios, but to me no point, VLC all the way

aspect ratios can seriously fuck off. this guy i know, he bought a widescreen LCD 52 inch and we were watching taladega nights, and the picture was still even thinner than the whole screen. and i mean MUCH thinner.
