Quicktime aspect distortion?

Question asked by tomlangton on Apr 7, 2014

Quicktime (.mov) files don't seem to respect their native aspect ratios in WebDirect container fields. They appear to fill the container regardless of what options are selected for the container field. in the native FM client, they appear as expected.


If I make the container field the same aspect ratio as the file, all looks fine.


Is the only work around posting the Quicktime file on yet another server and display it in a web viewer?

I'm on a Mac and see this effect in Safari and Chrome.


I have clients who platform and browser choice I cannot control.


Anyone have a clean workaround?



Thanks for any suggestions.
