Windows 7: Windows DVD Maker creating skewed diagonal video

28 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Windows DVD Maker creating skewed diagonal video

I ripped a chapter from a DVD of a friend of mine of some videos they made in high school in the late 1990s (no copyright issues). I used Handbrake version 0.95 to rip a video into an mp4 file. When I click on the properties, it says that the video is 718X480. I then used Windows DVD Maker (OS: Windows 7 64 bit) to turn it into a DVD. I used the "highlights" background for the title menu.

The clips shown in the background all look normal. If one goes to the "scenes" menu, the clips all look normal. However, when I play the actual video, either from the play button or from one of the clips in the "scenes" menu, the video is skewed diagonally and resembles an old TV with the horizontal hold off or a cable channel that has been blocked (see attached picture).

This happens if I play the video with PowerDVD, the other program in the Windows Media Center I can use to play DVDs, or even using VLC player. I tried using VLC player on another computer running Windows XP and the same thing happens.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
