Re: GSpot giving wrong info?

I've downloaded the first 3 VOB files from the torrent.

The VOB files are in 16:9 format, but the issue is that the IFO file (VTS_01_0.IFO) is telling your DVD playing software (VLC, DVD Player) to play them at a 4:3 aspect ratio. You can override this setting by changing the AR to 16:9 in VLC or by forcing your TV to display the video as 16:9.

There is a program called IFOEdit which allows you to edit the IFO/BUP files, so that they play the video in the correct aspect ratio. This will not affect the quality of your video (and no re-encoding is done).

I have done this and uploaded the files here:

Download them and replace your existing files and you'll find that playback will be as expected.
