I’ve been playing around recently converting various video formats to Divx (Xvid actually, but same difference!). I’m a quality freak so I’ve been using the highest resolution that my standalone supports (720x576) and reasonably high bitrates. As I’ve got a 16:9 TV, I’ve been using anamorphic frame sizes and using the wide setting on the TV to get the correct aspect ratio. (i.e. 4:3 or 16:9 movie encoded as 720x576, 2.35:1 encoded as 720x436).
Is there any way to get these movies to play with the correct aspect ratio on a 4:3 TV? i.e. does the divx standard and/or players have any support for anamorphic widescreen?
