    size & quality of video

    Is there a way I can view my .mov video larger without distorting the picture? The original video size is 160x90.

    You can view it at 160x90, but I imagine that is too small. No, you will have distortion, even if you go up in increments of 50%. Well, not distortion, but clarity degradation and pixilization.

    If the original footage is 160x90 (how did you even do that?), then the answer to your question is no. You can blow it up all you want, but it will always look awful.

    It sounds like the OP has used a thumbnail from an iMovie project and is trying to view that. Not the way to go....

    The thumbnails just happen to be 190 x 60 pixels.

    Cheers Mitcherooney
