    hi, so i have a video clip and the problem is that the ratio is set to widescreen but it looks like it wasnt meant to be. like it should have been a normal aspect like 4:3 or something but they squished it down to 16:9 or watever so all the angles and w/e look weird. is there a way i cud change it back to wat it shud be?

    I'd suggest you delete it. Vertical resolution is much more important than horizontal, which is why we have anamorphic encodes that stretch horizontally on playback. Sounds like you have the reverse.

    That said, it is possible that the file is 4:3 but with a non 1:1 PAR, so it gets stretched on playback. Otherwise you could resize and re-encode or set the PAR so that it resizes back to 4:3 on playback.
