Maintain aspect ratio with videoplane

SO I am working on a basic video player, with multiple layers, using multiple jit.videoplane

Is there any way to maintain a video’s native aspect ratio? As it is now, I have to set the x scale parameter to get it to match the original, and if I have mixed aspect ratio videos, I’d have to change this constantly.

On another note, is there a way to control x and y scale separately, but still be able to scale them together?
