Media servers (like Plex) that support .avs scripts?

Are there any media servers that support .avs scripts? For example, let's say I have a bunch of ripped DVDs with letterboxing or something like that, and I don't want to re-encode them. Could I just make an .avs AviSynth script for each video and then play the videos through the scripts?

Which media players support this? BTW, I wish VLC did. Is there a plugin? Thanks.

EDIT: To clarify, I am asking about both media servers (like Plex) and media players (like VLC).

what are you looking for now a media server or a media player.

MPC-hc with madVRR can do this without avs and it can play AVS too.

Looking for media servers and players. Hey, you're right, MPC-HC + madVR works!

Can I set an aspect ratio in AviSynth? For example, I'm playing a 720x480 MPEG (through a script) in MPC-HC, and it plays with square pixels (3:2 ratio), but I want it to display as 16:9. I don't want to have to change the ratio in MPC-HC every time I play a video. Is the only way to accomplish this to scale the video in AviSynth -- for example, to 852x480?

SomeResizer(854,480) # eg Spline36Resize, BicubicResize, Lanczos4Resize, GaussResize, etc

EDIT: Any reason you cant just use "Video Frame/Aspect Ratio/16:9" ?
EDIT: My MPC-HC stickies the 16:9 setting, so plays 16:9 always.
EDIT: I see, you want setting per script, not permanently 16:9.

playing AVS is not an ideal solution. just use the madVR cropping feature and you will spare a lot of time a problems.

How do you use that cropping feature? I'm looking for a way where I just click a file and play the video correctly -- without having to filter or crop it after you open it.

madVR options -> processing -> zoom control

you can set this feature up to your needs
doesn't work with dxva2 native and d3d11 native hardware decoding it is fine with copyback hardware decoding.

Okay, that's nice, but I'd like to be able to do more than that, like scaling and other filtering. I guess for that I'd need Avisynth, or to re-encode.
