I only recently discovered Emby and have already converted to a Lifetime license of Premiere (this product is outstanding!).
Unfortunately I am having issues displaying video backed up from my DVDs (720x480) in their expected 4:3 aspect ratio, they appear stretched horizontally. I only experience this issue on my Samsung TV (UN65JU6500FXZA) through the Samsung Smart TV Application. When I stream the same video via Emby in a browser or in Emby Theater the videos look correct. I'm not sure how to get my TV to display the version of the application it is running (if that's even possible), but I only installed it about a week ago so my expectation is it's a fairly recent version.
I pulled the following 1280x720 video from YouTube and converted it with handbrake to 960x720 and 720x480. All 3 play in correct 4:3 in the browser and with Emby Theater, and both the 1280x720 and 960x720 appear correctly on the Samsung TV App, with the 720x480 version being stretched horizontally. I can provide pictures if needed.
Worth noting: This problem seems to happen with every 4:3 movie I have (and the app seems to butcher other resolutions that aren't exactly 16:9 in pixel dimensions). Additionally, my TV's picture sizing functions are completely disabled while the app is running (for whatever reason?), so I can't use the TV's own picture zoom modes to adjust for this.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! In the meantime I streaming Emby Theater to my TV via my Steam Link to watch anything that's not a perfect 16:9 aspect ratio.
Also, I wanted to mention that I've tried to search for this issue, but haven't found anything that I thought directly addressed my question. My apologies if I'm mistaken about that and missed it, please feel free to point me in the direction of a prior thread if I'm reporting a known issue/topic. Thanks!
