    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 ?

    Cheers

    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?

    What @CyberSimian said.. you should probably try the "original" setting.

    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
