1920x1080 squished into a 4:3 square, not widescreen issue

Post by chrisn0123 » Tue Feb 03, 2015 8:36 am

Hi all,

Weird issue!

Our cameras are 1280x1080 (Dlink DCS-2230) and have a problem, where the video is squished. Looks like it forces it into a square 4:3, rather than 16:9.
If I set the camera to 1280x720, it works ok and looks 16:9. The input is RTSP if that is relevant. (Back end = CentOS 6.x)

If I view image properties in the browser, it does show it as 1280x1080 resolution.. so it is definitely 1280x1080. Just ZM is showing it like it is 4:3.

Please see screenshot:

Any ideas?

Cheers

Monitor Config -> Source -> (enable) Preserve Aspect Ratio
And set Options -> Config -> DEFAULT_ASPECT_RATIO to 16:9

If you don't mind scroll bars when the image resolution is larger than than the window, you can turn off Preserve Aspet Ratio altogether.

Ahh thanks for help!! It was the config option I had missed. Didn't know that one was there :)
