I have a question. How can I view Full Screen edition DVD's at pure FULL SCREEN on my 17" MBP. I know my display is widescreen, but is there anyway to stretch the picture so I can see everything? (eliminate black bars on side in 4:3 viewing).

Don't know how to do this in DVD Player, but you should be able to do it in VLC by messing with the Video -> Aspect Ratio and/or Video -> Crop settings. :)

And remember: Bumping is bad, m'kay... ;)

Stretching out a 4:3 picture to the 16:10 ratio of a 17" MBP is going to look bloody awful.

i think what Wicked is talking about is the fact that VLC ships with the "Stretch video to fill window" option off.

To fix this, open VLC, Preferences open the arrow for Interface, then for Main interfaces, then click on macosx.

Enable "Stretch video to fill window" and click Save.

voila!
