    Hi Peeps,

    I have just obtained a film in 1080p, and have watched a few chapters.

    Only thing is, My monitor is set to 1024x768 it looks very nice in this RES, but i thought it would look better if i changed the RES.

    So i changed to 1920x1080, i believe this is the native res for 1080p. But apon watching the film it all looked a bit stretched, and the actors look a lot thinner.

    Am i watching them, in the correct way ? or are actors all shaped like straws ?

    Set your resolution to 1920x1440. It might work. Your monitor is probably not a widescreen monitor, and is expecting data for the pixel difference between 1440 and 1080. If you're not sending it, it stretches the picture. If you send it, Media Player (or whatever player you use) will fill the empty space with black, and the picture will not be stretched.
