PodPress and Letterboxing of 480x270 videos (2 posts)

    I have a H.264 .mov video file which is the first of a new series of Videocast episodes I am creating. The video is formatted 16:9, specifically it is 480 pixels wide by 270 pixels tall.

    It appears the video is being resized....

    The Podpress player is letterboxing my video on the right and left sides...if you were to measure the ENITRE video playing window (by which I mean including the player control bar at the bottom and the two "letterboxing" bars on the right and left side) it would measure very close to 480 x 270.

    I am wondering if you need to increase your dimensions in the Dimensions (WxH): box in order to accommodate the space needed for the player? I entered 480x270 because that's my video's dimensions but now I have the letterboxing which I don't want and the actual video is smaller than I wanted because the letterboxing on the right and left and the player control bar at the bottom are taking up space.

    When it comes to files played in quicktime, you have to add 16 pixels to the height to avoid that issue.
