Description russianneuromancer 2010-07-30 20:16:44 UTC
Look at attached screenshots. I get incorrect rendering in Totem player on Ubuntu Maverick. Correct rendering - it's mplayer.
When aspect ratio of video stream not equal with aspect ratio in properties of this video stream in media contatiner (anamorph video) rendering ass subtitles always incorrect. For example real size of video in this sample file is 1440x1080, but it's playback like 1920x1080.

Comment 5 Tim-Philipp Müller 2012-11-03 13:04:39 UTC
Thanks. Well, there's definitely a difference in how it's rendered, so confirming for now.

Sample not available again. A lot has happened over the past 6 years. Closing bug. If you can reproduce the issue with current GStreamer please re-open this issue.
