Help

  • Hello,

    First of all I've to thank you for making such a fantastic tool!

    I recorded a few 640x480 and 320x240 videos as general avi mpeg4 (divx) files.
    When I open them in mplayer or totem, the ratio seemed to have changed from 4:3 to 16:9.
    In VLC I get also 16:9, but it's shown as a 4:3 with a black band to its right side.

    Only with avidemux I get the correct ratio.
    Is this something done by xvidcap or a gstreamer misconfiguration on my box?

    Best regards,

    Syaoran
