I hope someone has come across this.
Recently I have noticed that when I play an avi video file, no matter what the codec is in WMP or VLC the video plays, but it looks like it is cropped and zoomed in. What I mean is if I have a widescreen video and play it in WMP, it would normally take up move to the player screen, but instead, it only shows a small part of the video, like the rest of the video is masked out. This happens in WMP11 and VLC. And this only happens with AVI and MPG video, not MOV files, have had no problem viewing them in Quick Time.
I did some testing and noticed that it is only AVI files that have been rendered with some codecâ€™s, xvid, divx and DV avi files, but if I render out an uncompressed, no codec the file will play with out any problems. But If I render an AVI file (out of Sony Vegas Video) with some codec. I have had the problem.
Just to set the record start, this did not always happen. I did something lately that started this, because I had no problems rendering anything out of Vegas before.
So I was wandering if anyone has seen anything like this before.
Thanks in advance for your help.
