Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem

If I play my DVD (recorded with a webcam that stores movies into mini-DVDs) with totem the movie is showed correctly, that is with the correct aspect ratio that in my case should be equal to 1024x576 (16:9 proportion), but the properties window shows a wrong movie dimension: 720x576 (4:3). I think it's the size of vob file
If I play the same dvd with, for example, mplayer I see the following output (from console)

marco@dominus:~$ mplayer dvd://

As you can see mplayer shows that it prescales to correct movie aspect (1024x576) the mpeg2 video 720x576.
