I paid for and legally downloaded a movie. I just now noticed the original download specs say “1440 x 600 resolution” (original format was .MKV) and yesterday I converted it to an .AVI but did not click the box that said “maintain 4:3 aspect ratio” because I had thought the initial movie was widescreen and didn’t know if checking that box would convert it to fullscreen. (Note: I never actually checked the original file to see if it was widescreen because VLC won’t handle MKV files, but I assumed it was because it was a HD download).
Now when I right-click the file, the Properties displays:
I’ve never heart of 1440 x 600. Shouldn’t 600 be 720? When I preview the movie in my VLC player, it looks compressed. Any advice to a new video user what is going on here?
