OK, I have this bunch of videos shot with my camera and I want to gather them and burn a normal DVD that I can play back with my standerd (non-HD) DVD player connected to my wonderful 16:9 TV.
The videos are also 16:9 aspect ratio so I just put them together with DVD-Styler and burnt a DVD. The DVD plays right using my PC player (VLC, etc.) but strangely enough, when I play it back with my regular DVD player connected to my TV, the videos are "squashed" because two extra black stripes have been added on top and bottom of my TV screen.
Hence my first question: who put the two stripes there? My player? My TV?
I then tried and used DVD Flick and noticed it added two black stripes on each side of the videos, so that when played back on my TV player the resulting videos are displayed correctly as 16:9, but this time I got a black frame surrounding the video frame, the side stripes being added by DVD Flick, while the top and bottom stripes being added by the TV or the DVD player itself supposedly. It seems like DVD Flick knew better.
So my second question: can I get rid of those black stripes and use the full TV screen to display the videos in some way?
I understand the two programs I cited are front-ends to dvdauthor, so I will appreciate also a command-line solution to this problem.
Thank you very much.
