Handbrake questions. Can someone please help me?
I have some .mpg files that I created on a PC long ago. I now would like to convert them to MP4 format so I can put them in iTunes. So far, I've been using Handbrake for my other videos that were recorded in standard sizes with no cropping needed and this has been working well. However, for these videos I'm a little baffled. These videos are odd sized at 352x240 and do have some thin black bars on the left and right sides. So, Handbrake wants to crop the sides which is fine, in fact, preferred. But then it wants to resize the video more than the cropping, leaving it more square. Anyone understand why it's doing this? Can you suggest some custom settings to keep it close to the original size?
