Default Change aspect ratio of MKV files

Does anyone know of any freeware that can change the aspect ratio of MKV and MP4 files, specifically from 4:3 to either 14:9 or 16:9? I've tried MKVtoolnix but without success. Thanks in advance.

MKVToolnix should work for MKV files. You sure you are doing it the right way? See this:

https://trac.bunkus.org/ticket/648

For MP4, you can try MPEG4 Modifier: http://www.moitah.net/

or YAMB: http://yamb.unite-video.com/

which is a GUI for MP4Box.

Thanks Anupam. I used MKVToolnix to chsnge display width from 960 to 1120 lines (14:9 aspect ratio for 720 lines height) but PotPlayer, my TV's media player and a Sumvision player still play at 960 vertical lines. The header info shows display width has changed from 960 to 1120. This would seem to be the same problem the OP had in the link you posted and the reason given was a problem with the player. It just seems strange that all the players I've tried still play at 960 lines. Surely they can't all have the same problem. It seems YAMB can handle MKV files so I'll give that a go. Thanks again.
