I have some video files with distorted aspect ratios. With VLC I can modify the displayed ratio, but this setting is not saved, i.e. when I play a different file and return to the previous one, the original wrong ratio is restored.

Is it possible to save this setting on a per-file basis? Perhaps some meta data file for each media file?

VLC is terrible at saving things and I hate it for that. It can't even save equalizer controls at all; saving something per-file would be a miracle. – romkyns Oct 26 '11 at 11:40

AFAIK you can't save aspect ratios.

Using VLC, the only solution I can think of is to transcode the video into the right aspect ratio.

mplayer supports per file configuration files.
