Video Streaming does not maintain correct aspect ratio RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I've seen an annoying bug while trying to stream video files remotely.  Videos in an MP4 container will not play in the correct aspect ratio - the video plays in a square aspect (essentially 1:1).  For AVis (mostly xVid) this problem appears to happen less often.  Sometimes playing the same file will result in different behavior.  Anyone experiencing this as well?  Any known solutions?

    FYI, this behavior is consistent across Chrome, Firefox and IE, and whether I access remotely within my own network or externally.

    Thanks in advance,

  • I think this is a known problem for the VAIL beta Silverlight client.
