You have two options:

1, scale the movie so so that it has square pixels. You probably need
to scale anyway to align the size to a multiple of 16 and make it
compress better.

2, use the aspect=a/b or autoaspect lavc options to store the aspect
in the encoded file. Note that most player apps will ignore the
encoded aspect because they suck.
