    I'm trying to transcode a PAL resolution DVD into its original aspect MP4 equivalent.

    But when I do this, I get the following transpilation error:

    WARNING: Video aspect ratio is given as 720:576[1.25] but encoded as 1.333333:1[1.33].
    This is Chameleon transcoder engine [] (09/23/2013)

    Why is this happening?

    Try the 195x series. 12xx is on occasion buggy and slower but 1.9xx too but can sometimes process discs the other version cant.

    That said, cdvdm is long overdue for an overhaul and last I read here it was still on the todo list.

    No idea on a release date of any kind.

    I'm in fact using 1950 already. Downloaded and installed just two weeks ago.

    So, are there chances this is getting fixed?

    PM me if you need DVD details.

    If you have a Slysoft license (not Redfox), use version, works every time.

    Thanks for replying. How can I check which kind of license I have? The file name doesn't give any hint.

    If it's older than 3y: slysoft license

    Gee ... 3rd Dec. 2017. So, no candidate for SlySoft license, I'm afraid.

    Doubt it, but there's 1v way to know for sure. Install it, then try to register or with your key by manually pointing it to the registration file
