vlc player

I would like to know is there a way to set vlc player to play movies always at aspect ratio 16x9 instead of having me to set things manually when ever a movie does bot open fully maximized to the screen size.

I see you're mentioning full screen again (sorry, I have no solution for Real Player), so I suggest to UNDO what I told you to do (aspect ratio), but in the same screen as where you configured that, check the box next to "Full screen video output", and see how that works. As I said, your question was a bit confusing, but I think this is the better solution, because you mentioned full screen again. And as I said, using the 16:9 aspect ratio solution, in some cases, you might stretch the video out of proportion, while the Full Screen solution removes the windows elements (nice black screen with only the video) and also NEVER distorts the video with wrong aspect ratios.
Go to the Preferences, select "Advanced options"/Select "All" for "Show settings", and the in the "Video" section there should be a "Source aspect ratio" option. Enter 16:9 into that, press "Save" and try a video.

However your question is somewhat confusing, as aspect ratio and full screen are not related in any way.
You might even distort the video (person could look "too long" or "too fat")
Maybe you just want always start full screen instead ? If you don't touch the aspect ratio, the video (if the original source was already good) will be displayed as it's intended to be (also no windows elements in the screen)

That solution is great so far. I wanted to ask you the same for Real Player. I always have to click on Stretch-Wide and Full screen so that the movie can fill the whole screen is there a fix for that. Thank you,    you are a genius
