Is There a Way to Zoom Video in VLC Media Player?

Using VLC media player have there own great advantages like if you can play youtube video directly in it without any or you can also zoom that videos if there are of poor quality.VLC media player also provide so many features like rotating videos,cropping and many mores , but let see how VLC media player can be used to zoomed videos.

The following procedures will require your attention in getting successful.

After we open the video file with VLC, with the video either playing or paused, we click on Tools -> Effects and Filters.

On the Adjustments and Effects window that will open, we select the Video Effects tab and the Geometry sub-tab.

Don't worry, there are no geometry-related problems to be solved. We just need to check the Interactive Zoom checkbox.

This will transfer the full video to the upper left corner, picture-in-picture style. A white rectangle sets the selection to be magnified, and the main VLC window shows the zoom video playback.

To increase or decrease the zoom rate, we just need to click on the scale, right beneath the full video preview.

We can also select any part of the video to be magnified, by dragging the selection rectangle.

To hide the preview window, we just click on the VLC Zoom Hide text.

It goes without saying that no matter how high definition the original video is, using VLC for zoom video playback will considerably decrease the image quality. After all, we are selecting a small part of the video image and blowing it up to the full VLC window.

Of course, all these changes are temporary. No change is done to the file, and as soon as we uncheck the Interactive Zoom option, the video will be back to normal.
