    Well i have recently just started to burn dvd's and well i have gotten a good grasp on it and well i moved on to burning movies that i have downloaded in avi format... well i rip them to VOB format so i can burn them but (heres my question) when i play the dvd in my dvd player its in fit screen format and not widescreen... i have tried adjusting my tv ratio and as well as my dvd ratio and no luck.. i was wondering what im doing wrong here... i use WINAVI video converter with cloneDVD2.. any help would be great

    you will find that a lot if not most downloaded movies in AVI format will not be in widescreen format, a lot of the time this is due to them being filmed with a video camera.

    hmmm - most of the movies i used to DL were divx of screening DVDs - so they were made from real DVDs.

    you are right that cinecam avis will be in cinemascope but i dont see the point in those (i would rather not see a film than see a really crappy version)

    i would guess the setting in winavi might need a tweak to output as 16:9 etc... but as i have never used that s/w i cant say... nero has a dvd making facility that lets you change the output aspect ratio

    If you use DivXtoDVD to convert your AVI's it has the option of forcing the file to be 4:3(full screen) or 16:9(widescreen) You may want to give that a try it's a free proggy so it can't hurt, but to try :)

    I think VOB blanker can force conversion from widescreen to standard and vice versa. I did a trial run and converted a standard dvd to widescreen. It worked, but of course the aspect ratio looked funny. If you like watching people who are wider than they are tall, that's your preference.
