mutiplex, new cropping option
As a (very) long-time user of SecuritySpy I have always been irritated at the black bars issue. The new cropping option in 5.4.1 is a good addition for some people, but it crops too much of most camera views. In my own static image viewing software, I have come to prefer altering the aspect ratio in either x or y to fit a fixed-size space. Yes, this stretches the image, but when viewing security cameras I would rather see all of the image regardless of a little distortion. Keep in mind that many cameras are already distorting the image because of wide-angle lenses. More distortion to avoid black bars is ok.
