To make things even more confusing, Media Player Classic breaks the pic using the 578 pixel
height, but Chrome actually works with both the 576 and 578 pixel height. However, as soon as I
change the height to 984, then both Media Player Classic AND Chrome show it broken.

There must be some cut off point off where Chrome gives up, which exceeds Media Player
Classic's cut off point.

What a mess.
