While trying to extract some data from an ASF (DVR-MS) file using 
Haali's muxer I noticed it sets the aspect ratio this way. Is that a bug 
or a special feature ?

The specs say:
DisplayWidth  	4  	[54][B0]  	-  	-  	not 0  	PixelWidth  	u-integer 
Width of the video frames to display.

DisplayHeight 	4 	[54][BA] 	- 	- 	not 0 	PixelHeight 	u-integer 	Height 
of the video frames to display.

That's in pixel, it's not an aspect ratio.
