Dunno if this annoys anyone else, but it sure bugs me...

They stream 16:9 material letterboxed in a 4:3 frame, which means that on my Widescreen monitor, or if I watch it on the LCD in the lounge, I get a postage stamped image. Ahhhh

Why can't they just stream 16:9 in 16:9 ? Grrrr

They've got 16:10 in a 4:3 box.

So I download the flv files and cut them while playing with VLC. far better.

Gosh what a PITA tho. It used to be better when you could download all of the shows, even if you did have to pay for them. At leave the quality was alot better.

I just look into the source of the page, and find the flv segments.

I don't mind. I've got a template for Breakfast too.

I grab the flv's as well, perhaps someone should ask tvnz about it? Theres no disadvantage in streaming widescreen video even to people with 4:3 monitors.

Looks like TVNZ ondemand has changed to a 16:9 aspect ratio, but the web player now strangely shifts the picture up...?

(This is for Breakfast, I haven't seen the other programmes yet).
