One of the software's was Windows Media Player.

I am on windows 7, on a laptop. I used a blank Sony DVD-R.

How can I get it normal?

Sounds like the player is just displaying your video in the wrong aspect ratio -- your video is in a wide-screen format, but Windows Media Player is using the 4:3 aspect ratio that was typical of early TV and very early movies. I don't use WMP myself, but there should be a drop-down menu or some other way to select a different aspect ratio.

Not enough info.


What was the size & format of the original video?

What is the size of the stretched video?

What aspect ratio was the original video 1:1, 4:3, 16:9?

What aspect ratio is the stretched video?

NTSC or PAL?

If I'm not mistaken;

PAL should be 720 X 538 for 16:9 "1024 / 1.89" or 720 x 406 "768 / 1.89" for 4:3

NTSC should be 720 X 448 for 16:9 "854 /1.89" or 720 x 338 "640 / 1,89" for 4:3

When you authored your DVD in both your softwares, what aspect ratio did you use?

I always use 720 X 480. 4:3. NTSC

Hi, The thing to remember with DVDs is that whether they are 4:3 Aspect Ratio or 16:9 Aspect ratio the video file resolution is the same. It is just a flag on the DVD that tells the player that the video is regular or widescreen and the player does the rest.

Obviously something went wrong in either the encoding process to MPEG2 or the authoring process. I am presuming that the source video looked OK?

What was your process from start to finish?

Cheers

I will try to clarify.

1. Did the video look OK originally?

2. What did you do to it to put it on the DVD?
What software did you use to put it another way?
Windows DVD maker?

3. Are you converting it to a standard DVD format or just putting the AVI file on the DVD?

4. A Standard DVD is either 480P, 480i in NTSC land (USA, Canada, Japan for example) or 576P, 576i in england and most if not all of Europe.

You could try this software.

What aspect ratio is the stretched video? >>>>>how do you tell?<<<<<


To find out what a audio/video file actually is, use Mediainfo, or Gspot. (I don't think Gspot will work on Win7)

http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en

With the DVD in the PC. Look inside the DVD's VIDEO_TS folder.

("Start" > "my computer" find your drive, right click on your DVD drive, click "explore" double click the VIDEO_TS folder,

and find a file that has the extension .VOB should be .99 GB. example VTS_01_1.VOB )

Drag that into Mediainfo Or, use Mediainfo to browse for your DVD's VIDEO_TS folder to find the .VOB



Mediainfo will analyze the .VOB and tell you what format, size, DAR, NTSC or PAL etc.

Also use mediainfo to find out what the 720p AVI is. Divx?



You could also try DVDFlick. No adware/spyware.

http://www.dvdflick.net/download.php

http://www.dvdflick.net/guide.php

Start all over again by adding the 720p AVI to dvdflick. and follow the guide.
It should convert the AVI to mpeg 2 and burn to DVD.(If you live in the USA it will be NTSC 720 x 480)
If the results are the same, and your video is still stretched, and you get no answers here, try asking your question over at the Doom9 forum, or Videohelp forum.

http://forum.doom9.org/

http://forum.videohelp.com/

Supply as much info as you can. The steps you took, and exactly what software you used. including the Mediainfo . . . um, er. . . info. :)
