Problem with Aspect Ratio on Sony Blu Ray Player

Postby patmax99 » Tue Mar 26, 2013 8:27 pm


I'm using PMS 1.72 and have been streaming with no problems to my ps3. I recently got a Sony Blu Ray player (Sony BDP-S3100) and am having aspect ratio problems for some files. I originally had this problem with my PS3, but it was solved when I added "(width/height < 1.7 || width/height > 1.8) :: -vf expand=::::1:16/9" to the codec specific parameters on MEncoder. The problem I am having is that the BD player is expanding widescreen (movie aspect ratio) into the 16:9 tv aspect ratio, getting rid of the letterboxes on top and bottom of the movie, and basically stretching the file vertically. I have tried changing my setting on the Blu Ray player, but nothing has worked so far.

I am using the MEncoder engine with all H.264 files.

Hopefully someone has a fix for this. TIA
