I'm new to digital cameras and am using a JVC GZ-MG77aa hard drive camera. when viewing the footage on the small camera screen it looks correct as 16:9 (which is also the current setting on the camera).
When I play the footage on a PC after copying the files straight off the camera, the image is "squashed" to 4:3 and everything is tall as though it is still a widescreen image but for some reason it isn't being interpreted as such by the software playing it back. I'm using Windows Media Player 11 to view it.
Can anyone provide guidance on where I'm going wrong?
