    Playing the video with Media Player Classic Home Cinema [1.7.1 ( 9ae7b7c] - Display Mode = 100 % > the edited video image is displayed in 720x576, however the original VTS_03_1.VOB appears in ~768x576 - not 720 , but 768. In Avidemux both are displayed in 720x576. Under no circumstances I realize those typical distortions of aspect ratio errors!

    Questions

    1. Why the MPC-HC displays the original VOB higher than the same edited video (when GSpot says both have 720x576)?
    2 . What is more appropriate in the Resize: enable or disable the option "Round to the Nearest Multiple of 16"?

  2. 1. Because the DAR is 4:3, 720x576 gets resized at playback to some 1.33:1 ratio, one such as MPC-HC's 768x576. Apparently you didn't set a PAR when encoding so it gets played back at the wrong aspect ratio (everyone too tall and thin) of 1.25:1 (720x576=1.25). Either set it when encoding or resize to some 1.33:1 ratio, ones such as 768x576 or 640x480.

    I don't use AviDemux so maybe someone else can provide more information.

  3. I gave Avidemux a spin and couldn't get it to set the correct aspect ratio no matter what I did. Maybe I'm missing the obvious..... The encoded video was quite jerky too, but I didn't investigate that.

    Vidcoder or Handbrake would be better options.
