Hi There,

If you have a DVD containing VOB files and you want to encode them to hard drive they convert with the wrong pixel/aspect ratio. I am using the Archive / Hard Drive option.

For example a PAL encoded DVD turns out totally square instead of 4:3 or 16:9.

Cheers peeps and hope you all had a great Christmas.

Try opening your encoded videos in VLC player, perhaps the one you are using doesn't support widescreen.

Same problem here. Your video mentions a aspect ratio setting, but none displays. The VOB plays in 16:9, but is crushed to 4:3 including the preview. I thought I might have an earlier version of the program, but no info or setup icons display. Seems to work OK from a converted file MP4, etc.

Thanks,

We still experience this problem with VOB conversions on the latest version.

what is the best intermediate format to rip to that creates the most size efficient FLV file? MPG-2 seems to be a bear to use directly.

Thanks for the feedback.

The most recent version of Videowrap has a selection switch for 16:9 or 4:3 that seems to work fine.
