Description Stewart Adam 2009-02-09 18:46:44 EST
Description of problem:
When starting Cheese, I noticed it was using the 1280x720 resolution by default which resulted in a distorted image (stretched vertically). Using 640x480, 1024x768 or another resolution with a 4:3 aspect ratio fixes the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(Fedora 11 Alpha)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Cheese
Actual results:
Image is stretched vertically because of the incorrect aspect ratio

Expected results:
A resolution with a 4:3 aspect ratio is used

Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2009-02-10 03:00:40 EST
Cheese simply chooses the highest resolution. Choosing the highest 4x3 ratio res is not necessarily correct, as we do not know what the ratio of the cam is, nor do we know if the pixels are square.

Thus this cannot be fixed that easily. Also note that cheese remembers the choosen res so you only need to do this once.

So I'm closing this as not a bug, you may want to try opening a bug upstream (bugzilla.gnome.org), maybe they have a better idea of how to fix it, but I doubt it.
