I'm watching the same movie in VLC and in Quicktime. The movie is 720x576 in resolution. For some reason, when I open it in VLC it gives me a nice wide screen, but in Quicktime, it gives me a short fat screen. Does anyone know why the big difference in window sizes? Shouldn't they be both the same? here are examples: (quicktime is on the left, VLC on the right) If you can give me some help regarding why they are so different and what I can do to fix them I would appreciate it. I chose the 720x576 resolution because when it was in .vob format (ripped from a dvd) that was the native resolution, so when I encoded it to .avi I kept it the same.
