Re: 16:9 Widescreen Conversion

I tried to use Ifoedit to change to widescreen, and it worked to playback from the HDD and as a DVD burn when played back on my computer, but it's still 4:3 on my cheezy home DVD player (Panasonic VHS/DVD combo) on old school tv...

The menus are properly formatted for 4:3, so I'd want to leave them alone, but change the main video content to 16:9, to make the band normal height, instead of the 8 foot giants they look now with the 16:9 vertical stretch going on.

Can anyone help me out with the ways to properly make this into widescreen?
Yeah.....some standalones wont play it right after Ifo-edit.It looks like you didnt ifo-edit the menues.
It is luck of the draw on the playing front though.
However,its more likely to be your old school TV for why no 16.9.
Play it in a nieghbours player with a new school TV & see what happens.
