I honestly do NOT know where to post this but if someone comes across this perhaps you could explain to me. Currently, I use Plex home theater to stream all my files across my home network. Prior to this, I used small media players on my TVs connected to a hard drive. The small media players (micca speck) in my case, could allow full screen for 4:3 content without it looking overly distorted at all. There was nothing cropped off the pic, it just looked ever so slightly stretched. Now, with plex, I cannot do this and I have to rely on my TV if I want 4:3 to be 16:9. Normally, I just leave it alone in its native format, but I was playing around the other day with my TV's stretch mode on some 4:3 content and I noticed something I do not understand. Example: I Love Lucy - I have the entire series that I ripped myself from DVD's to mp4. In stretch mode, some episodes look perfectly fine, while others have this horrible zoomed in look. Since all episodes are 4:3, I'm trying to understand why there is this difference. And it's not just this 4:3 show, it's other 4:3 shows as well, some episodes look terrible in stretch mode while others look great. Can someone explain to me why there is this difference if it's all 4:3 content? I never experienced this when I used full screen mode on my media player on any 4:3 content. I realize a lot of people think it's a horrible sin to stretch 4:3 to 16:9, but some devices seem to do it really well without making it look horribly distorted.
