    Trying to scale down video
    Original video is a H264 .mov file 1920x1080
    Trying to convert to h264 mp4 640x360

    The problem is that every time I encode the file the video always ends up 640x368 with a green bar (approx 8 pix) on the bottom even though I have 640x360 in video size.

    Any assistance appreciated.

    Thanks.

  2. try using 368 to start with as it's divisible by 16.

    Thanks for the reply,

    As a test I have tried encoding at 368 and the green bar is gone (but it is still 368)
    Excuse my ignorance but can I not scale my original to 640x360 properly?
    Isn't 640x360 a 'standard' video size?

  4. not for all encoders. some are mod16 that require that height and width be divisible by 16. others require divisible by 8, 4, or 2.

    Google of "640x360 standard" returned nothing.

    640x360 is 16:9 but
    360/16=22.5

    Hence 8 undefined lines.
