1080 X 1920 videos playing incorrectly (1 Viewer)

Hi guys

Just an issue playing some video clips

They are 1080 X 1920 (NOT 1920 X 1080) so the frame height is 1920 and the frame width is 1080

They play fine on VLC. (they should be quite narrow). On Mediaportal they play a bit too stretched

I am using LAV filters for decoding

Any ideas ?

    You can adjust the aspect ratio on playback via the Context menu when the video is playing. There are various choices. Possibly one of the choices will give you a better result?

    Just in case anyone else comes accross this problem (rare for most media , will only find in videos taken by phones), i have fixed it by bulk resizing videos to 16 X 9 in virtualdub 2 (filter adds black lines).

    Files play like regular 16 X 9 vids
