That projector is a manual zoom, so you're either going to have to deal with that, or add an anamorphic lens. Since the projector has the aspect ratio controls, you'd be set up for using a lens. ...

Length of songs will not matter on any of these... It's the number of entries in the database, not the size of the music files. Same reason it doesn't matter if they are FLAC or MP3.
