remove black bars widescreen movies with mencoder


i have a widescreen movie with those black bars on top and bottom; i would like to use mencoder to create a movie (mpeg4/divx) without them

i have done my research, but i still haven't figured out how to do this... what flag do i use to remove those bars?

these are the command-line string of options i am currently using:

mencoder dvd://1 -aid 128 -oac mp3lame -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vqscale=3:vhq:v4mv:autoaspect:vpass=1 \ -ofps 23.976 -vf crop=720:364:0:56 -o amovie.avi

Have you looked into transcode?



Iuse mencode to force fps all the time in avi files for dvd conversion but I use transcode for any aspect ratio issues I might have.
transcode has clipping and zooming options. man transcode or got there site and look at the documentation.

Also here is a great piece of documentation on doing exactly what you are asking:
