I have potplayer set up without window border, and no GUI unless the mouse hovers over it, so when a video plays, all I see is the video and nothing else, neat and clean.

BUT there's still these annoying black bars, either on top / bottom or left / right, depending on the ratio of window size to video size.

It would be great if the window would snap to the videos' X or Y size when I resize horizontally or vertically. Also it would be nice if resizing diagonally could be limited to only work on a straight line (Sort of how 'Shift/resize' works in Photoshop). These two things combined would make it so that I never again had to see these depressing black bars :) It would just be one nice, clean rectangular block of video :)

In case this is already possible, take it as a request for help instead of a feature request.

Main menu - Aspect Ratio - Stretch by Keeping Aspect Ratio

but it doesn't help if the black bars are part of the video.

Nope, that's not what I mean, as it clips the video.

I guess what I request would be called 'snap to AR when resizing window'.

Hm I guess its not really a bug but a bit irritating nonetheless: A video plays and I resize the window so that the video is smaller than the skins minimum size (i.e. Video about stamp size- it fills the windows' whole Y, but is smaller than the X)- When I then move the window, it automatically resizes the Y, so that it matches the AR.

Its minor, but maybe it could be fixed in some future release...

That is not bug

The minimal window size is a skins feature

Maybe not exactly a bug, but still, imo this is not desired behaviour. Because when I resize to this:

...once I grab the window to move it, it instantly snaps back to this:

Which means, there's no way to move the small window as-is.
