how to add black bars to make mpeg4 1920x1080 even?
Hi all,

I am trying to play back some video on my PS3 but it is *extremely* finicky with the video format. It needs to be mpeg4 with AAC audio and either 852x480, 1280x720, or 1920x1080.

The problem is that I have two videos, one is 1920x800 and the other 1920x1040. All I need to do is increase the width by adding black space to both sides of the video.

My video is contained in an MKV, but I can easily extract it for the processing.

I'd greatly appreciate any help. Or, does anyone know any other forums that would be good to ask this?

Are you running the latest firmware on your PS3? I have never had problems running arbitrary resolution videos on mine; it just always scaled it up to the system's output resolution (and maintained the video's original aspect ratio).

yeah definitely, it won't play anything not at a proper HD resolution that i know of

You can pad or crop. -croptop ## -cropleft ## -padtop ## -padleft ## (bottom / right / .....) ffmpeg options. -padcolor RRGGBB where RRGGBB is the HEX number of the color, just like html's #000000.
