[resolved] Stretched videos on player (4 posts)

    Hi.
    I converted a video with 480x320 resolution, HTML5 video, with mp4 extension.

    So, I put in my shortcode width="720" and height="404".

    So, video appearing stretched, 440x414px, and I can't play it with original size. I tried every configuration, controlbar styles too, but I get the same stretched effect.

    Any suggestion?

    If your video is actually 480x320, you should tell the plugin to display it at those dimensions. You're telling the player to display the video at 720x404, which is 16:9, so you're telling it to stretch out the video. If you want it to be 720 pixels wide (assuming your template is that wide) then you should tell it to be 480 pixels tall.

    I did this, but same result, video are stretched.
    I tried another plugin, and I get same result. Any problem with libraries?

    It turned out the video was supposed to be 16:9 but had been encoded at 3:2. Using a different video encoder and setting it to the correct dimensions before uploading solved the stretching problem.
