DVD-SVCDs are never in widescreen 16:9
So if your watching one on a WS TV its like watching a non WS TV program: you have the option to watch it as 4:3, 14:9 or 16:9 (or whatever your TV offers) Its no big deal - just go for the one you feel most confortable with.
SVCDs which claim to be widescreen usually aren't. Whilst thier sources probably are, the mpgs are letterboxed so that the movie part looks WS but the mpg is not (if that makes sense). In this case you can adjust your TV accordingly so that it will look better on your TV than on a non WS one.
I've got a WS and it infinitely better than a non WS IF you use it correctly (don't fall for the squashed people syndrome!)
I have a SVCD in anamorphic 16:9 format.Whenever I play it on my TV, I have to manually switch the TV into 16:9 mode in order to watch it with correct AR.
Question: when I convert this SVCD mpeg to DVD, is there any way to tell the player, that's a 16:9 instead 4:3 movie?Will ifoedit do the trick?
Or must I reencode the whole mpeg?
Dragonsf use dvdlab to author your dvd.. it worked for me when i put svcds on dvd.
That answers my question!
