myDVDEdit is a DVD-based spec editor designed to allow you to edit your previously built DVDs, a tool which allows you to understand and even to modify the content of a DVD, at the deepest level.

The format of a DVD is very complex. I have tried to make it as accessible as possible and have therefore left aside explaining some bits of information, which, although they are important in enabling the DVD to be read by the DVD player, are of no importance to anyone who simply wishes to understand the DVDs structure.

myDVDEdit cannot read protected DVD videos, and it will never be able to do so. It has not been created to more...

This incredibly powerful program is far beyond my needs but it does one thing of great value to me: it fixes the improper flag settings on the DVDs iDVD creates so that 16:9 movies have the correct aspect ratio on 4:3 displays. AFAIK it is the only app that can do this.

Although it has not been updated in several years the author is actively supporting it on his forum:

There is an article in the documentation sub-forum explaining in detail how to fix the iDVD 16:9 bug.

This thing has reached the point where it can be quite helpful as well as fascinating.

Indeed, DVD structure is quite complicated, and i've learned a lot from messing with this. It has allowed me to fine tune and correct some bits of projects in ways not possible with iDVD, without forking over the money for DVDStudio Pro.

It was also helpful as part of an ugly workflow getting a rare Region 2 (European) PAL DVD i bought to play on my US bought player with menus intact.

And hey while you're backing up a DVD that's worse for wear, might as well use this to tweak it so you don't have to look at a passel of flying logos, disclaimers, previews, and lame advertisements the studio wants to force you to watch before you can get to the movie.

Many discs make you read some of that stuff in more than one language, and tell you the commentary doesn't reflect the opinions of the studio without you even choosing to listen to the commentary!

I hope this is still under development.

It's very unique.

GREAT app. Slightly cryptic, but very powerful. The only bad thing about this app is the lack of documentation...but once you fumble around with it enough you see how valuable it is.

WHAT?
That last review was UTTER NONSENSE!

QuickTime Pro and MyDVDEdit are for entirely different tasks and have almost NO overlapping functionality.

There is no "Movie File" in DVD structure. VOB's are MPEG2 which QuickTime doesn't even play without the purchase of the MPEG2 component in ADDITION to getting the Pro upgrade.

There isn't anything under "Show Movie Properties" in QuickTime Pro labeled "VIDEO", MyDVDEdit is for editing the structure of a DVD as explained above; not for playing back a video at the right aspect ratio!

This isn't a player.

MyDVDEdit isn't great, and it's not finished by a longshot, but QuickTime doesn't do what this does in any way, shape, or form.

This is a waste of time... All you need is Quicktime Pro upgrade.

Open the Movie file.

Go to SHOW MOVIE PROPERTIES in "Window" menu

Click on VIDEO

Turn off Constrain image

And change your standard 4:3 ratio to 16:9 by typing in monitor resolutions e.g. PAL is 720 x 576... just change that to 1024 x 576 eh voila -- instant uncompressed anamorphic widescreen in its proper aspect ratio with proper black bars for 4:3 sets.

You don't have the foggiest clue what this software is for, do you?

NO clue. I don't know what that gibberish he posted could possibly be construed as, but it certainly has not a thing to do with this GOOD program.
