16:9 on the web - don`t want black bars in flash player

Ok heres the way the video was made. Recorded on a Canon H1, 16:9 60i (i think), recorded onto a firestore, then the m2t files edited in premiere. I used this tutorial http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=85443 and exported with Debug Host Framer Server, built the Uncompressed AVI with Tmpgenc using 1.33 PAR and 16:9. Then I dropped that into Sorenson Squeeze, then compressed the flash file. While the picture is not squished (which took forever to get it that way, we can`t seem to figure out why It puts the black bars on the top and bottom. When played with the Riva player, there are no bars....but in the embedded flash player....bars. Any ideas how to make the player on the site just show the video?

Looks like you are using the same player I use. I was looking through your source but its a little cluttered for a quick glance. I think you have it setup for 400 Width by 300 Height. Make sure to use the option to maintain aspect ratio is selected in the compression settings of your flash settings. Also double check that squeeze detects the ratio properly. At the top of the preview it has an aspect setting for the video you are currently working with. I checked in the Squeeze player and your video still showed up with bars so I think its is one of the encoding settings.

hmm weird. I did make about 1000 versions of it, so i don`t remember which one was the final that worked this much. Do you have suggestions of how you do it? Does yours display black bar free? (note : the website is programmed by someone else, i only do the video and encoding end)

yeah i am black bar free. (http://www.bartenderweekly.com/episo...pisode02/watch) make sure you are using a wide screen resolution (divisible by 16 and 9) The video information that I got from your meta data suggested a resolution of 400 by 300 which would explain the 4:3 ness of your video.
