Did you use "--blank" for omxplayer? That's the only way I know to play with black borders but Kodi does not seem to pass "--blank" to the player.gkreidl wrote:I just tested it with a 4:3 video (both from my OpenBox desktop and from LXDE) and there was always a black border at both sides; no desktop visible.
It is weird indeed, I want to keep 4:3 and just fill the free spaces on the left and right with black to hide these parts of the xfce desktop.gkreidl wrote:I'm sure there are settings on kodi for that, but do you want to distort the image? Spreading a 4:3 video across a 16:8 screen looks weird, IMHO.
