Thank  you very much.
Yes - I would like to keep same aspect ratio as far as
the object in the video - I do not want them to appear
fatter or thinner than the original, but would like
the video to fit inside 1280x800 without any black or
blank borders.
Couls you please show me a command line example
of how to do that?
Original video file is in avi format. I would like to make
the new format plan mpeg4 (no avi container).
