    Hey Guys,

    Looking for days for a forum like this. Hopefully you can help me, would be very awesome

    Ther're lots of movies from my Childhood on YouTube. Most of them are not possible to buy on DVD.
    A few months ago someone posted a whole serie on YouTube I was looking for for years. It can't be bought on DVD, so I like do download it.

    I've some very old TV sets (I'm a Collector of Tubes Electronics), wich have the 4:3 screen aspect. The intention is to playback the downloaded 4:3 movie on such a TV set.

    I found several YouTube download programmes, but they give all the same problem: a downloaded 4:3 YouTube movie gives, even on a 4:3 TV, left and right black bars.

    My question is: Is there a program wich downloads the YouTube 4:3 movie correct, so it can be played back correctly on a 4:3 TV? I like to write te file on a DVD.

    Thanks a lot!
    Gert

  2. A lot depends on whether the video was uploaded in 4:3 in the first place or whether the pillar boxing was encoded into the file.

    Here is an actual 4:3 video (not mine) youtube.com/watch?v=mM5_T-F1Yn4
    You can use it to see if your software is downloading correctly.

    If your files have pillar bars encoded in, you can crop them off when you convert to DVD format.

  3. I thought youtube converted everything to 16:9 but that video is definitely 4:3. Here's what youtube-dl shows as the available streams:

    No, there's no letterboxing or pillarboxing in the video. Made into a 4:3 DVD (downscaled, obviously) , or played with a player that can output 4:3, it will fill the screen of a 4:3 TV.
