Premiere Pro: Why does a 320 x 240 MPEG-1 file look squished ie, "shorter" than a 320 x 240 WMV file

    I use Premiere Pro 1.5. This may be a basic question, but when I use
    the Adobe media encoder to export to a 320 x 240 .wmv file it looks
    normal, but when I export to a similar bitrate (700 kbs) mpeg file it
    looks squished vertically so that it is shorter and more rectangular
    looking. In windows explorer they both show up as 320 x 240 when right
    clicked for properties but the mpegs are definitely "squished". Same
    thing happens with the mpegs when I export as an AVI and use Cleaner
    XL to make the MPEGs! Anyone have an idea?

    Sounds like a pixel ratio aspect problem to me.
