Resizer for DSTV Drifta windows client 1.3.15 (and v1.3.40)

Posted on May 5, 2012

A lot of people ask for a way to resize the viewing windows of the DSTV Drifta on the PC. One of the early versions was “hacked” to allow this to happen but DSTV quickly released new versions which were encrypted and employed other methods to prevent hacking and re-sizing. Since then we have had to resort to using windows zoomers of various natures, and while this has been useful it isn’t the same as being able to drag the window to the desired size.

Help is finally at hand.  Moe1 (bless his soul) has released a little application which runs alongside the DSTV application (yes, it works with the very latest version available from the DSTV site, so go and get it) and enables resizing. In doing it in this manner it does not require distribution of any DSTV code (whether that is copyright or not is now irrelevant). All of you legitimate fee paying Drifta subscribers can now resize your windows to your hearts content.

Extract of the Readme below, links to the download at the bottom.

Thanks again Moe1 (and thanks the guy who posted the links, happy to give you credit if you like, just mail me to say I can put your name here).


DSTV Mobile v1.3.15
Video Screen Resizer App
By Moe1

Due to popular demand, finally here is the screen resizer for v1.3.15 (and later) of the DSTV Mobile decoder. Billy you wanted it now you got it! 😉

Installation Instructions:
1. – Copy Resizer.exe to your DSTV Mobile installation folder. (Ex. C:\program files\DSTV Mobile Decoder\)
2. – Run Resizer.exe and click the “Load & Resize” button.
3. – The DSTV Mobile application will start as normal and you will be able to resize the screen by dragging open the video frame accordingly.
4. – You can close the Resizer app at any time, it will not interfere with the DSTV Mobile instance.

This will only work with DSTV Mobile v1.3.15 decoder for Windows (and later versions!)
This application does NOT modify your decoder.exe file so you will still have your original file.
Making the screen size too big will just result in an awful picture, hence the reason for the screen size restriction in the first place.
