Re: Unnecessary 16:9 (or: how I learned to cut off the black bars on a 4:3 video authored in 16:9 and love the bomb)

yes, i can be wrong, & yes, it is possible to not re-encode...but 98% of the time when amateur collectors [not meant to sound snobby] are mucking about with authored DVDs, they end up re-encoding whether they realize it or not

as for the PgcEdit trick you mentioned, i'm not familiar with Windows progs...maybe you could work up a step by step to help Salva do this properly?
