My source material is 720x576 PAL. I want to create DivX AVIs for
playing on computers (with all players inckuding Windoze). As I
understand, to play back correctly, the films need to be recoded into a
4:3 aspect ratio (aka 1.33:1, from 1.25:1).

To have maximum quality *and* compatibility, should I set the aspect
ratio code in the AVI, or should I resize when encoding?

And if I should set the aspect ratio code: is it possible to just add
the code to an AVI *without* re-encoding? i.e. mencoder -ovc copy -oac
copy (and some options to add the aspect ratio code).


Yours, Mikhail Ramendik
