I had tried that previously and didn't notice any crackle, but tested it again now and, listening closely, the crackle is still there but it's not as present nor frequent. So likely a tape issue,...

Great, thanks again. I've got AvsPmod up and running and it's great so far. I'd been put off getting into too much AviSynth stuff because it was daunting (still is). But having the video preview is a...

I downloaded AvsPmod earlier today, it looks good. Haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but I'll do so during the week and try out your script. Thanks heaps for your help!

Great, thank you, that settles that part of my dilemma, then. I'll continue to set DAR 4:3 and archive the 720x576/768x576 and 720x480/720x540 master files.

I've got no intention to change my...

As I mentioned, I'm keeping the master lossless files, simply looking to remux into MKV with appropriate aspect ratio.

Can you provide a sample script/cmd of how you do that? All I have seen for ffmpeg is -aspect 4:3 which sets the DAR. And gives me 720x540 instead of 640x480.

Regarding YouTube, would...

Yep all good there. The files are displaying and playing back correctly, the 4:3 ratio is no problem - my concern more so is: is the 720x540 resolution a problem?

Yeah it definitely gets confusing. I didn't realise the SAR/DAR terminology in ffmpeg documentation - but that shouldn't be an issue given the command is "aspect"?
