Hey, I've got a whole series of vids in MP4 ready to put on my media player but these are in 4:3 and on such a small screen I prefer them stretched to 16:9.

I was wondering if there was a way to change the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9 without spending ages re-encoding the 13 hours of video. After googling I found something like it for avi files called "MP4 Converter" although this doesn't do MP4 files, I'm a little confused.

If anyone could help me out I'd be grateful if not I'll just have to convert em all.

I used Any Video Converter when I had to re-encode a tonne of tv episodes.

Yeah sorry I didn't say that very clearly, I want to play them on my mp3/mp4 player but since the screen is so small I prefer watching them stretched to 16:9 than in their normal 4:3.

But nevermind Ed you're right anyway turns out there is a little option to fill the screen so didn't need to reencode them all anyway problem solved :) Thanks guys.
