Answer: Video Aspect Resolution Fix
When movies playing from email@example.com player from USB or LAN via DLNA,NFS,SAMBA,UPNP normally Samsung program ,exeDSP, that plays the content but don't allow us to stretch the Video to TV size. SamyGO hacker, newagehun, implements the video aspect resolution fix.
- Version 1 : This fix will stretch the movie to TV size and discard the aspect resolution of source. You cannot use "original and fit" options from menu. Movie will stretch to TV size every time.
Version 1 requires change of 5 byte from exeDSP, from different locations. At SamyGO Firmware Patcher, there is a code to extract exeDSP from image and investigate the symbol table of exeDSP than those changes applied automatically to various different exeDSPs within same code.
- Version 2 : This fix implements various view modes. Addition to Original and Fit mode;
- Full Screen
- Non Anamorph
Unfortunately, Version 2 of this fix requires injecting code to exeDSP. Because of needing new area for this injected code, we overwrite some foreign languages area. Due this it's little harder than v1 fix and thus not implemented by SamyGO Firmware Patcher yet.
