Error using Flask MPEG & Panasonic encoder - "data bit rate or DV buffer too small" : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Hi folks,

Am trying to backup my DVDs using FlaskMPEG. Half way through the movie I get the error mentioned above, at which point the capture stops but the DVD keeps playing. Up until then it has worked no problem.

Am using the Panasonic MPEG encoder. Have tried lowering the data rate which seems to have no effect. Can't find a setting for DV buffer anywhere. Any ideas?

Cheers, George

I don't know about the flask encoder but in the panasonic mpeg encoder you have to increase your bitrate or even lower your resolution. Try to increase your bitrate first within a fixed region of the movie and give it a lot of tries before you decide which one is the best. Trust me, I've been there!
