Anamorphic DVD - aspect ratio
#1
The new TinyMediaManager (3.0.5) reports the incorrect aspect ratio for anamorphic DVD-rips. This used to be an issue with TinyMediaManager but was corrected in a later version of 2.x. The bug seems to have reverted with the new version. Sample MediaInfo below:

Video
ID                                       : 1
Format                                   : HEVC
Format/Info                              : High Efficiency Video Coding
Format profile                           : Main [email protected]@Main
Codec ID                                 : V_MPEGH/ISO/HEVC
Duration                                 : 1 h 17 min
Bit rate                                 : 758 kb/s
Width                                    : 720 pixels
Height                                   : 480 pixels
Display aspect ratio                     : 16:9

In TinyMediaManager 3.0.5 this shows as a 4x3 aspect ratio (and is stored as such in the NFO), but the actual aspect ratio is 16x9.

do you mean https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...ght=aspect ?
I suppose this has never been implemented since tmm does calculate the aspect ratio on its own and we're not evaluating the values from mediainfo

Yes, I'm the original poster on that thread also. I could've sworn that handling the aspect ratio flag was implemented in a 2.x version, though. The flag should be evaluated to determine the aspect ratio (and/or display width / height) since an appropriate player will read that value and display the video according to the flags, not just based on the pixel width / height. Not as much an issue for HD content but a large percentage of SD content will have this issue since the DVD specs allowed for anamorphic video to take full advantage of the limited resolution when the video was widescreen.
