Finished DVD is displaying a small image on TV screen?


Recommended Posts

After capturing a VHS movie using Video Cap  and editing it and burning to DVD  with Video Pad the finished image from the DVD on my TV screen is quite small occupying only 2/3 of the screen surrounded by black.  Have I failed to enter a parameter somewhere in VideoPad?

I should add that I did select the aspect ratio to 16:9 on both the capture device and Video Pad before burning.

I've tried everything I can but without any joy. Any help much appreciated

Did you burn a DVD Movie or a Video File?  Assuming Movie, since many TVs don't recognize video files, did you check TV settings for picture size options?

My set has several.

Share the project (not the export) and we'll take a look.  The process is easy, quick and can be done privately.  Just follow these steps...

  •     Back up --- With your project on the timeline, click on MENU at the top-left.  Click FILE|BACK UP PROJECT FILES TO FOLDER.  Choose a folder and SELECT FOLDER.
  •     Upload ---  Use a free server - Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc.* - to upload the saved, numbered FOLDER.    Do NOT upload the individual VPJ or export file. 
  •     Get link --- Get a public link.  If using Google Drive click GET SHAREABLE LINK. If necessary change "restricted" to "anyone with the link can view" 
  •     Share ---     Click COPY LINK | DONE.  Paste that link here, or click the folder at the top-right of this forum to message it privately to me.  It won't be shared.

          *    Before uploading, right-click the folder, click PROPERTIES.  Look at the File Size to confirm that it's not too big for the free space on the server.
