I read in a different thread that all dvds have a resolution of 720x576(pal) and I presume 720x480(ntsc). This seems to be verified when I use SmartRipper to rip vob files to my hard drive. I presume that there is something that is supposed to tell the player to stretch or squish this data to output either a 4:3 or a 16:9 movie, whatever it was supposed to be. I have been using DVDx to make MPG files out of this data, but the always seem to come out "squashed", a 4:3 movie shows at about 3:2, end a 16:9 at about 16:8. I have tried messing with non standard output resolutions to stretch them vertically, which makes the playback "taller", but somehow (no, this doesn't make any sense) everything in the movie still looks squashed! What's going on here? Ay suggestions?
