Realtime Spftware MPEG encoder/codec that works a Matrox Marvel : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I have a matrox marvel which captures in MJPEG.

I want to realtime encode the capture to mpeg 1, preferably an mpeg file that I can turn into a VCD.

I have downloaded the test fir Winvcr which I think does the job. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with the Marvel. If anyones has a fix or an alternative I would be grateful.

Any ideas?

software like WinVCR does not work with MJPEG cards like Matrox Marvel or Iomega Buz.

Besides, WinVCR produces terrible quality mpeg files (even worse than a Snazzi or Dazzle).

Is there anything that will recompress to mpeg on a fly for a regular tv card or matrox marvel. I tried MJPEG but to get decent quality you get a pretty low quality stream.

I want to backup a DVD to video cd and mpeg2squeezer is about a 15hr process to finished result. Don't see why I cant do it on the fly with a decent cpu (>400 PII/CELERON/PIII)

Any ideas?
