Hi Kaarlo,

Thank you very much for your help.

I tried it However, it appears, p_filter->fmt_in.video.i_width, i_height, etc., everything is 0.

I am using version 2.0.1 of vlc. 

The category for my module is CAT_VIDEO and subcategory is SUBCAT_VIDEO_SUBPIC. Is it possible that this subcategory gets a dummy fmt_in object?

>In my video filter module, I need to obtain the screen width and height as well as the movie width and height (based on the selected aspect ratio). I am wondering if someone can guide me or point me in the right direction on how to obtain this information.

You can find video_format_t definition in include\vlc_es.h, it contains width, height etc. You can access e.g. width via p_filter->fmt_in.video.i_width
