  1. I always used to do MP4Box.exe -par 1=16:9 "video.mp4" which worked fine in the past but not anymore.

    It screwed up the resolution in the header so MediaInfo now reports 720x4294964692 instead of 720x400. I had to delete and re-encode.

    What's the new trendy way to do this since MP4Box doesn't work anymore?

    delete it and use the backup copy of the video you made before messing with it?

    or toss it and say oh well, i'll remember to make a backup next time

    Try remux with something else? Like ffmpeg or avidemux(under video and audio choose copy).

    With MP4Box you set the PAR, not the DAR.
    To set a 720x480 video to 16:9, you need a PAR of (480/720)*(16/9) = 32:27 ≈ 1.185
    For other frame sizes you have to tweak the numbers.

    GaePussy sealed the fate of this topic with his usual ******ry, so a new one commenced which by the way is not the same as this one. I've re-encoded so the header has been restored but I still need to shift the PAR which MP4Box can't do anymore, hence a new thread.

    This one may be closed.

    Edit: Wow I see the other one has been closed instead, nice.

    I know that. Never did I mention DAR anywhere.

    Voluntarily wastes his time trolling a message board then complains about having his time wasted. Priceless.
    Go fart with your boyfriend.

    Well I did try starting a new thread, but since Baldrick locked the wrong one, this'll simply have to be the substitute. Got a problem with me editting the thread to reflect the actual problem? Take a chill pill and quit trolling, bro.

    OKey. Back to the topic now.


    What mp4box version are you using? Maybe try mp4box 0.5.1 dev from http://gpac.wp.mines-telecom.fr/downloads/gpac-nightly-builds/

  13. Thanks Baldrick, that new MP4Box worked. I'm using r2735, but I'm switching over to that GPAC one now.
