Why does my movie displayed thinner than the width given in its properties?

I think I tried this in the wrong forum before.

I have an avi, I crop the top and bottom black bars in virtualdubmod. I save it as mkv.

The final resolution is 640 x 352. But it displays as ~444 x 352.

It shows (5:4 aspect ratio) also in the properties. Why? I didn't manually set that. But it's probably why the video is tall and thin instead of displaying the way I wanted.

I did finally fix it in mkvtoolnix by manually assigning a wider aspect ratio. But what is it that made virtualdub assign that odd AR in the first place?

Thanks for the replies y'all. I had no idea virtualdub was still being updated, I thought mod was the fresher one Does it support more formats now and hopefully crash less?
