I dont think Media Player Classic can read the playlist files from WMP10 or 11. They are totally different formats.

Is there any particular reason you aren't using the new, non-classic, version of Windows Media Player? It would solve your problems quickly.

the main reason is that you cant control the aspect ratio.
Do you know any programs that play play list files and you can control it?

MPC is the best video watcher around.

it can read m3u playlist but not .pls .axs or .wpl (WMP) playlists. change your playlist to m3u. open it in wmp then hit file, save now playing list as, then pick the m3u extension.
