    Default 720 x 576 Video Plays as 16.9 on DVD

    Hi There,


    New to the forum and fairly new to video so any help is much appreciated


    Problem


    I have some avi videos files that are 720 x 576 and play 4:3 on my P.C. but when I burn them to disc they play stretched at 16:9.
    If I play the disc in the P.C. they play at 4:3.
    These are videos of old VHSs so I need them to play in their original 4:3 format.


    Background


    I am converting my old VHSs to DVD. I have my VHS Player connected to a Panasonic NV GS55 camcorder and the camcorder connected to the PC via Firewire.
    I have been using Adobe Premier to Capture the video and then have been using either Adobe Encore to burn to disc.
    I have set the aspect ratio to 4:3 in Encore and have also tried burning the disc in 'Nero Vision' and 'DVD Flick' again setting the aspect ratio to 4:3 but they always play 16:9.
    I have played the discs in both my blu ray player and Xbox with the same results.




    Apologies if I haven't provided enough information...just let me know what else is needed.


    Thanks

    This sounds like it is a DVD player issue or possibly the TV. You probably have some setting on either the DVD player or TV which automatically makes everything go into wide-screen (16:9).

    Have a look around the menus on the TV or DVD player and see it you can turn it off.

    Firstly thanks for the quick reply.

    Looks like that is the answer. Changed the aspect ratio settings on the player and it played fine.

    I had naively assumed the DVD player would have been smart enough to see the flags and was over complicating things.

    I shall try and remember to 'Keep it Simple Stupid' (KISS) in the future.

    Thanks again
