Playing a DV movie with a 4:3 ratio

From: Jose Luis Paredes

I have a 720x480 dv movie I want to play as a 1024x768 screen. When I use the mac quicktime X player application it plays the DV movie at 640x480 preserving the 4:3 ratio. When I play it using the realbasic movie player it plays at 720x480. Is there any way within realbasic to make it play this movie as the regular quicktime player does? My understanding is that quicktime knows to go to "higher quality" mode for a dv movie and makes the 640x480 movie
include the extra information available in the 720x480. Any info would be appreciated.

Simply define the movie player size to be the size you want.
