I have several mkv files where myth's handling of mkv properties is
"different" to mplayer which displays the file "correctly".
If I examine the files with mediainfo I see HD broadcast files
containing "Aspect Ratio" which is correct 16:9 but also "Original
display aspect ratio" which is set to 4:3 and I think is what causes
mythvideo to display the file with the wrong aspect ratio.
I have other files which also display correctly with mplayer but have
"Scan type" set to "Progressive". When viewed with mythvideo they have
periods of pixelation but if I assert interlaced video they display just
I could workaround these if I could find a way to edit those properties
but mkvpropedit doesn't seem to be able to edit those properties? Anyone
found some way to do this?
Another workaround might be if I could store the file override in
mythvideo properties, for example aspect_ratio_override=16:9. This would
be useful for many files for example if I could say always display
another file with subtitles (and even which language).
