While trying to get the next right, I bumped into an issue. When capturing stuff originally made with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the system automatically adjust the image to fit on my 16:9 screen which messes up the pixels outputtet. Ideallly I want square pixels so no special aspect handling is required by the playback equipment.

Things are further complicated since videofiles are generally not great in handling screen resolution changes in the middle of the file, so the metadata gets out of whack and playback is messed up unless manually specified.

I'm mention this because I had two attempts this week that I had to trash because of this, and then spent a day or two trying to figure out a good way to handle it.

The good news is that I'm still on track to get it done for tomorrow, took me a bit too long to decide on the next one. 😃
