We have all been talking about the 1024x768 limitation, or lack thereof (we have yet to know for sure) and I noticed something tonight...

My screen resolution is set to 1600x1200x32 and when I watch the videos, in this case, the Stormy Weather Demo, I maximize the video (i.e. full screen). What is strange is that the video doesn't seem to be stretched, odd shaped, or whatever....almost ike the video was taken in 1600x1200x32.

Is that how video works on a computer for movies such as this? Or will the movie always be able to be viewed "full-screen" despite desktop resolution?

Not strange at all since 1024x768 uses the same 4:3 ratio as 1600x1200, or 800x600, or 1280x960.

It's not about screen resolution but screen ratio.
