  1. Hello,
    i test FFMpeg with a sample MP2 file and it seems to report wrong size.

    It says that the video has a size of 352x576 while it propably is 576x352.

    Am i doing something wrong ?

    The sample is one of the samples that can be downloaded from ffmpeg's site.

    Code:
    c:\1>ffmpeg -i "samples\harry-part.mp2" 2> harry.txt
    
    c:\1>type harry.txt

  2. It's correct

    The encoded frame size is 352x576 . But the Display Aspect Ratio is 4:3. So it "stretches" to 4:3 on playback. How it gets resized during playback depends on the player specifics and settings. Most would probably display it as 768x576

    Notice it says the DAR is 4:3, but the SAR (or sample aspect ratio) is 24:11 . You can think of "SAR" as the same thing as PAR (or pixel aspect ratio) . It's just different naming conventions

    4/3 = 352/576 * 24/11

    Agreed. That used to be a common frame size in DVD days for lower resolution/bitrate material (e.g. VHS sourced). It is also known as 1/2 D1 (d1 being 704 or 720 x 480/576). Its even part of the DVD spec.
