How to play videos in widescreen or 16:9 format in Windows Media Player?

1] Play your video file.
2] Click on the Notification area in the taskbar.
3] Double click on your video decoder, for example ffdshow video decoder.

4] Select Resize & Aspect option > Select Resize to screen resolution and also select No aspect ratio correction under Aspect ratio column.

5] Finally click Apply button to save the changes and OK button to exit.
6] Now Windows Media Player should play your video in widescreen format.

Note: If you can't find any audio/video decoders then you should install codec pack.


  1. This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
