    I have video file on SMB share with visual aspect ratio about 2:1 (long time ago it was 16:9) and frame aspect ratio 4:3.
    In Windows I just rum MPC-HC, open \\nas\share\video.avi and use numpad to adjust sizes.

    Is there ANY linux player that can do this? I don’t want to mount.cifs that share and convert file to normal frame size, I just want to watch video. From Dolphin context menu :-)

    i like smplayer’s ability to navigate video track using keyboard arrow keys, but i hate it for pulling too much dependencies. thanks to mplayer2 i have to install the unwanted whole samba packages because mplayer2 depends on libsmbclient in debian (or smbclient in arch linux). if only them developers can move that foocking samba dependencies to an add-on mplayer2/smplayer would be my favourite player

    Wonderful list. I like VLC more compared to other free video players. Tested already from windows to mac and linux.
