If I specify no ratio, or use monitoraspect I get no picture for many disks.
The real wierd thing is when I specify -aspect 4:3, I see this in the
verbose logs

Movie-Aspect is 1.33:1 - prescaling to correct movie aspect.
VO Config (720x480->720x540,flags=0,'MPlayer',0x32315659)
VO: [dfbmga] 720x480 => 720x540 Planar YV12
what's with the 720x480=>720x540 line????
If I specify -aspect 1.5 I get 720x480=>720x480 instead.

Regardless, Using aspect 4:3 (or nothing at all for disks that accept that)
me images that are too tall. They kinda look anamorphic.

Well at least in my case, the parity adjustment doesn't seem to be helping.
Also, the
jerky motion seems a bit too coarse to be a parity problem
