Thread: Best device profiles to use? Aspect ratio issue.

    Default Best device profiles to use? Aspect ratio issue.

    I'm having some aspect ratio issues with two Samsung devices. One more noticeable than the other.

    1. I have a Samsung BD-J6300 Blu-ray player and Mezzmo displays fine if I access thru typical DLNA. But if I watch through the Mezzmo app with all of its wonderful features/metadata, I get black bars on the left and right of the video messing up the aspect ratio. Mezzmo auto-set this device to 'Samsung BDP' profile and I've also tried 'Samsung BDP (2013 models)' and 'Samsung BDP 3D' but get the same black bars when watching in app.

    Is there a different profile I can use or some other fix I'm unaware of?



    2. Then I have a Samsung Q7 Series (55) TV. It's also effecting aspect ratio to make things stretch taller, but here the video is somehow still full screen. The device profile I'm currently on here is Samsung K.

    What profile would be best to switch to, or what other fix can I try?


    Thanks for any help! Loving the program overall. Customization options are amazing. I've spent a lot of time setting everything up and thrilled with how it all looks, just want to get the aspect ratio fixed and I'm good to go

    The Mezzmo app will put black bars to maintain the aspect ratio encoded in the file. When viewing outside the app then the TV may stretch the video to fill the screen, there are usually options available in the TV or bluray player to change the display mode.

    Thanks Peter, that may be the case with my Blu-ray player then.

    But with the TV, I can see the Mezzmo icons in app (Library, Video, Recently Added, etc.) stretch to become skinnier and taller as well. So there definitely seems to be some sort of aspect ratio issue with it.

    Maybe there is no definite answer for all cases, but in general, is there anywhere I can find suggested profiles for those two devices? Or is there another fix I can try aside from changing the device profile for the aspect ratio issue with the TV?

    The Samsung C profile pads the icons with black bars to 320x320 but this profile is quite old and may not work with the newer model TV. For the aspect ratio of videos you can try some of the suggestions at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?..._your_videos&s[]=square&s[]=pixels
