I have vids like that ... I want to stream it on youtube with the same DAR and without quality loss
Codec ID : XVID

this is a chuck :
When i upload it on Youtube I get good quality but with wrong DAR

Try resize to a standard 16:9(dar 1.777) resolution like 640x360 and then upload.
856x480 is also 16:9 and looks good on YouTube.
Thanks to all , but I want my vids to be shown with the right DAR.
* resizing to 640x360 or other means stretching the image because DAR is not 4:3 or 16:9 , it is 1.87:1
* Re-cropping means data loss because these vids are cropped before.
I found two primary solutions :
1 - Bad solution ; adding this line in TAGS yttretch=16:9 (the original DAR is not 16:9 but it is near of that)
==> this reduces the quality & when I save it , I get the buggy DAR "4:3" 720x576

2 - Youtube encoder causes this matter with (Xvid) codec When I tried (AVC/H264) "YOUTUBE recommendation" the problem is solved but with lower quality & higher size.

youtube would prefer h264 mp4. start over with the original source and use a higher bitrate if you see quality loss. 4-5 mbps is not unreasonable. with the max filesize now at 1GB per video it's not like you can make it too big.--
