Panasonic Encoder, Program Error When Try To Convert MPG To MPG : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I have a problem where when try to convert a High Bitrate MPEG file to a VCD MPEG File in the Panasonic Encoder, the program crashes. It works file with AVI to MPG, I know it can be done because I've seen it posted on this fourm. Thanks for any help

What's the error? What mpeg format did you use, mpeg1 or mpeg2? Panasonic can only work with mpeg1. If you want to use mpeg2 then you will have to work with the plug-in version along with an interface software. I am assuming you're using mpeg1 stream type.

wing, can you be more specific on how to input a mpeg2 in Panasonic plugin? Thankyou.

How can you get the Panasonic encoder! I went to the web site gave all of my information and it tells me that they cannot accept my email account. I never heard of anything like it--PLEASE HELP I want to purchase it and I can't!!!!

Not sure how many times one has to say the same thing on this site but....

The Panasonic Mpeg-1 encoder will accept anything your Windows Media Player will play (the readme file actually says that), mpeg1, mpeg2, mpeg4, avi, DVtype 2 avi, mov, dat (dat straight from a vcd) and maybe others that I have not actually tested.

From the point of view of MPEG2 I find it will handle both VBR DVD compliant files, CBR mpeg2 and SVCD VBR files as well, just put them in and out they come the other end, in time that is. But when I think about it, I use WMP with the LSX plug for Mpeg2 so that might be the reason why Long has said (above) the opposite of me on this point.

To use the plugin version you need a program that has the plugin as the prime support program such as Flask or the timeline of a NLE program that supports the plugin and Mpeg editing.

However there is ONE EXCEPTION in my experience and thats a HR VCD file in either dat form or in mpeg form, yes it blows the program up. I have some ideas why but I have no fixes for it.

The flask program will not do a HR VCD file either or AT LEAST not the ones I have burnt in Nero.

I am in the process of checking out the MSP6 program for mpeg editing and I will try the HR VCD (2500) as an example to see if what ever problem exists with the file is usable in MSP6.

These reasons amongst others are why I have not opted to actually use HR VCD's, its all too restrictive and my results do not suggest a big increase in quality as others suggest - its not worth the hassles they generate with other programs or variations in set top players.

If you have Flask try it and see if it accepts the file and then what the program spits out as the properties, at least it must be a 4:3 CCIR601 file and I guess in NTSC 352 x 240 in size with the video data rate that corresponds to the original file.
