Windows 7: AVS Video Converter won't compress video to fit screen

AVS Video Converter won't compress video to fit screen

I have AVS Video Converter and what I'm trying to do is download 1920x1080 (I don't want 720p) video clips, converting them from mp4 to wmv and setting them as my desktop background. I use this converter because it is the first converter I tried that gives me lossless conversion to wmv. My screen resolution is 1280x800.

I use the 1920x1080 video and leave all the settings except for aspect ratio which I set to 16:9 and the resolution to encode the video at 1280x800.

When I set it as my desktop background, the video is still 1920x1080 and if you compare the original to the desktop background, the video is "protruding" from the screen, so I can't see some areas.

I've tried setting windows background to center, tile and all options but still nothing.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this or suggest a new program?

try Format Factory - Free media file format converter. On the second window (after you selected .wmv and selected your file) go to "Output settings" and click on "Default" next to Video Size. There you can select your resolution. If you click on "Automatic" next to Aspect ratio, you can select 16:9.
