Hey everyone -- so this isn't in the memories, so I hope someone can help.
I used to have WinDVD until I switched computers and forgot to copy it over. Everyone seems so "yay" about PowerDVD, but so far I hate it.
It absolutely refuses to keep the screen aspect ratio the normal size and instead does the weird stretchy thing and makes my caps look hideous. WinDVD never had this problem, but there has to be some way to fix it, I'm sure. I have "keep aspect ratio" checked off in the configuration everywhere I can find it and it's still off.
Secondly, is there a way I can set it to capture as a .jpg? .bmp is way too huge and converting the thousands of caps I take per movie is way too time intensive. Again, WinDVD had this option right on the main menu and it worked great. I tried to go in and change the extension that it saved as in the saved path, and it didn't work - photoshop said something about the image had an unknown or invalid JPEG marker.
Can someone help me? Otherwise I'm afraid I'm going to have to go back to my lovely wonderful WinDVD. And I even paid for PowerDVD. *kicks self*
