I'm doing a site for a film-maker involving a lot of showreel and slideshow material and having a great time with that great little add-on Slideshow Pro, it makes the life of a non techie much easier.
But, I am having less fun preparing the flv files with decent quality. The sources are in a variety of formats including one that comes down to 720x276 from dvd source files. Whenever this comes through the media encoder there is a conflict, I think, over pixel ratios, and the format is squeezed laterally.
Because I'm using a mac (powerpc under OSX 10.4.11) my options for encoding and conversion software are limited. But can anyone point me to a post or tutorial that might lead me through this issue?
