How to Solve Handbrake Rip DVD VOB to MP4 Aspect Ratio Distorted issue?
Below is one sample case when using Handbrake to rip DVD to MP4 format:
"I'm masterful at using Handbrake so I don't know much about it yet. I've ripped 720x480 VOBs using DVD Decrypter and I'm now trying to convert these huge VOBs into more size-friendly MP4s. However, when I check "Keep Aspect Ratio", it locks the dimensions to 720x304."
Diagnosis: Somehow comparing with MP4, AVI video format is more size-friendly. But Handbrake do not offer AVI option any more. While compare MKV to MP4, if you choose H.264 Video Codec, the output quality and file size is hard to make difference.
While, since a third party DVD Decrypter is involed, make sure it did not cause this Handbrake Rip DVD VOB to MP4 Aspect Ratio Distorted issue. Below is offering solution of this trouble.
Solve Handbrake VOB to MP4 Aspect Ratio Distorted issue
Solution 1: Change your settings to Anamorphic: Strict instead of Anamorphic: None. Then the output video will strictly follow with the original file size. If the output resolution still has problem, then the trouble-maker is supposed to be DVD Decrypter.
Solution 2: When encoding from DVD or a VIDEO_TS folder Handbrake would spot the mismatch (2.37:1 stream vs. 1.78:1 container) and would defer to the container's setting. If you're set on using anamorphic none, then disable keep aspect ratio (since the reported PAR is wrong) and manually set the frame size to 720x400.
Solution 3: Whenever you feel curious and want to try Handbrake Alternative, then Google Best Handbrake Alternative, and WinX DVD Ripper Platinum will be the answer.
