Video Aspect Ratio Problem
I'm having problems with the aspect ratio of dvd's I've made in standalone dvd plavers. I've transcoded some widescreen .avi's I have to .mpg's with mencoder retaining their scale and aspect ratio and such. Then I create my dvd with qdvdauthor no problem.The dvd's play fine in all their letterbox glory in Xine and Mplayer. When I play the dvd's in a standalone dvd player they display at 4:3. Meaning that the ends get cut off, and all I get is the middle bit without the benifit of pan and scan. what do I have to do to get my videos to letterbox in my standalone player?

In the words of Roseanna Roseanna Danna...Nevvvver mind!...The problem was all in the "wet ware" (as most of my problems are)... And no I won't go into details

Au contraire, please do give us the details -- it might save someone else the same pain.
