Correct Aspect Ratio

Hi!

I’ve an MPEG2 File with an aspectio ratio of 16:9. Now as my monitor has a 4:3 resolution I want to change that to 4:3. Of course, I could do a reencode. But that would reduce the quality of the stream. Is there another way to tell the player to recognize that this is a 16:9 MPEG and that it has to be resized in order to be display correctly? (I want to modify the MPEG, not configure any players)

Thanks,

Yep, get a program called DVD Patcher (from Doom9.net download section) and it will patch the headers of the mpeg2 stream to what ever aspect ratio you want. Just use it with caution of course and on a backup file.

Ah thx :slight_smile:
