SVCD question (Centropy movies...)


I just downloaded a movie from a newsgroup.

It's a Centropy bootleg, in the SVCD format.

When I opened the mpeg movie in Windows Media Player, the image came out HUGE and was STRETCHED out vertically.

Furthermore, when I tried to burn this to VCD in NERO and then played it on my DVD player, the image looked distorted, as if my DVD player couldn't take such a high image quality.

How do I convert this SVCD into a normal looking image on Windows Media Player and DVD players?
