The following is one aspect ratio 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 compared with MP4, AVI video format is more size-friendly. But Handbrake will not offer AVI option any more. While comparing MKV to MP4, the output quality and file size is hard to make difference if you choose H.264 Video Codec.

Since a third party DVD Decrypter is involed, make sure it did not cause Handbrake rip DVD VOB to MP4 aspect ratio distorted issue. Solutions to this trouble are offered below.

How to Solve Handbrake Aspect Ratio Distorted Problem in Converting VOB to MP4 File


Solution 1: Modify Anamorphic Setting

Change your settings from "Anamorphic: None" to "Anamorphic: Strict". Then the output video will strictly follow with the original file size. If the output resolution still has problem, the trouble-maker is supposed to be DVD Decrypter.

Solution 2: Manually Set Frame Size as Original

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, disable "keep aspect ratio" (since the reported PAR is wrong) and manually set the frame size to 720x400.
