iDVD - Video is Stretched....
on Feb 20, 2012 at 9:37:28 pm

Hello everyone or anyone

Sorry for a silly question, but i cannot figure this out.
I have a video which for some reason when I try and create the DVD in iDVD, the video is stretched and does not match its original size. If i view the file outside iDVD it shows fine.

Is there a setting I am missing somewhere?

Thanks in advancem

You probably have the iDVD project set up in the wrong aspect ratio for your video.

If the source video is HD, the project should be 16x9. If the source video is SD, the project typically should be 4x3.

I sometimes make DVDs with iDVD for one of my clients, which are basically viewing copies of finished programmes (which are 16:9), and they get played on a motley collection of PCs and DVD players. In that context I've found it much more reliable to make the DVDs as 4:3 with the programme letterboxed as I can't be sure of what player might be used (some of them are older software and don't show 16:9 non-square pixels properly).
