Nowadays, OLED screens are dominating cellphones, which have a critical potential problem as screen burn-in if you watch videos long time and high brightness with fixed picture parts such as TV program's banners, logos, letterbox black bars, etc. To prevent burn-in, I usually crop the video picture to make it full screen on my cellphone to make sure no any letterbox black bars appear, then I video pan the picture up or down to move the banner or logo out of the phone screen. Usually I don't need to zoom in as an extra step to sacrifice any more picture(meaning crop more picture) in order to move all static part of the picture out of the screen. Just crop to full screen and a simple pan is enough and it'll work like a breeze. Such is what I do with nPlayer Pro. While MX Player Pro does not allow this as it seems to me. Cos it doesn't limit the boundaries while I pan the video up and down. It's simply a random move like out of control that actually always results in worse scenario for preventing burn-in. Cos you easily move the whole picture's edge into the screen in any one direction. This creates more burn-in cause instead of solution. You just cannot do it perfectly to make sure at least 2 sides of the picture edges are aligned with the screen while you only move in the other 2 directions meanwhile never have any picture edge inside the screen.
For example, watching a Bloomberg TV video(16:9) with a Samsung Note10+(19:9), I need (1) to crop to make it full screen, then (2) to move the picture down to hide the always shown banner from showing on screen. While doing step (2) with MX Player Pro, it's not humanly possible not to move the picture in either left or right direction, thus it always creates an extra black bar either on the left or right. And yet I don't want to zoom in to solve this as I don't want to unnecessarily sacrifice any more portion of picture. I want keep as much picture as possible on my screen. The other thing is while moving the picture down in this case, you easily move too much picture out of the screen and create an unwanted black bar on the top of the screen, while I just need the top edge of the picture aligned with the screen top. If there are limits for edge alignments, each move will be so easy and Video Pan will function like a charm. Otherwise this function just feels half baked and not practical. Seems to me that there's no point to move any picture edge within/into the screen when it's not in. All picture edges need to be either aligned with the screen edge or outside of the screen edge when you pan a video in crop & full screen mode. Never inside.

So, please add move limits to all 4 directions for Video Pan. This will make MX Player Pro perfect. Thank you so much!
