I have a few 16X9 videos in avi xvid format which I'm trying to convert to wmv for my portable device. The problem is that the wmv's are stretched to fit the 4:3 format and I see no way to change the aspect ratio. Is there a workaround for this? I am a registered user of this product. Thanks.

To keep the widescreen aspect ratio, you can choose one of the Windows Media Format profiles that don't change the video dimensions. For instance, if you select "WMV - For Desktop Viewing" as your Convert To Format, and use Very High Quality video, the converted video will have the same aspect ratio as the original file.
