Letterbox videos where height a has been specified that is larger than the video


My implementation automatically replaces WMVs embedded in content in my CMS solution with the SL2Player. Some of these videos have heights set on the WMV object that are larger than the video. WM simply letterboxes this. The SL2Player however forces everything to the top and leave a huge black bar at the bottom. I have changed the XAML everyway I can think of but I can't seem to get the video and controls to center so that I get a letterbox effect. Any help is appreciated.

You need to set the width/height on the player itself...no auto letterboxing occurs on the player controls.

That is what being done currently. I just think it would be more attractive to split the extra room between the top and bottom rather than having it all on the bottom.
