    Ich finde den Popcorn Hour auch klasse. Ein Nachteil ist, dass man die Aspect Ratio, ich meine das Seitenverhältniss nicht nach belieben ändern kann, und dass die Aspect, die z.B. im MKV Container hinterlegt ist, nicht ausgelesen wird, und der Film in in der „physischen“ Aspect Ratio wiedergegeben wird. Oder weiss jemand was Anderes?
