  1. It seems like encoding a xvid with 'DVD ffmpeg' preset is behaving differently than I remember it doing on my ppc .9v. with .9v using the below settings I would get a .m2v and an .ac3:
    preset: DVD ffmpeg
    video auto size: DVD 16:9
    Framerate: NTSC (29.97)

    but now using the same settings with .9w I get a .mpg file that gets rejected by DVD Studio Pro 4.
    I also get this error with the 'DVD mpeg2enc' preset:

    Yes, sorry I wasn't very clear. I get the above error with the mpeg2enc preset. with the ffmpeg dvd preset I don't get any errors, but the result is a .mpg file that gets rejected by DVD Studio Pro 4.1. .9v used to give me a .m2v and a .ac3 when I used the ffmpeg preset. and DSP4 had no problem with them.

    Also the above error with mpeg2enc only happens when I change the framerate to NTSC. if I leave it at 25 fps then its works fine.

  4. If you want elementary streams with DVD ffmpeg, also enable "Normalize audio", which will force separate treatment of the audio track.

    About the mpeg2enc error, it appears because for NTSC the image size of 720x576 is not allowed in the DVD standard. For NTSC, the image size has to be 720x480.

    This should be fine then! I can't reproduce the error, perhapos do any other user got the same behavior?
    I have seen older posts here reporting the same behavior, e.g.,

    https://www.videohelp.com/forum/archive/t277315.html
    Darn... I guess no one else is having the problem. Is there anything else I can try?

    Apparently it can't recover the inversion in video/audio tracks. I was able to encode it with audio by opening the mov in QT Player, clicking apple-J, copying the audio track, deleting it and pasting it scaled back to video, so as the window says

    Video
    Audio

    Instead of

    Audio
    Video

    Hope this helps,
    Major, I see what you mean. I looked at an old test movie made from iMovie a while ago with Quicktime6. Sure enough it has Video/Audio in that order and works with ffmpegX. It looks as if there has been a change in quicktime that now means an export has the tracks swapped around. This will be true of all movies made from iMovie. Is the problem with not recovering from this inversion in mencoder?

  11. I guess that mencoder should not have this problem.

    I have a wierd problem in coverting a H264 file to DivX, wrong frame rate is suggested by the FFMPEGX app of .58 fps,

    The file is an anime title I got from the http://a.scarywater.net/conclave site called Witchblade - 01 [Bakakozou - Conclave]

    It is

    VIDEO: h264, yuv420p, 640x480
    AUDIO: vorbis, 48000 Hz, stereo

    [from FFMPEGX Progress screen:
    Input #0, matroska, from '/Volumes/Video_Massive/Anime/[Bakakozou_-_Conclave]Witchblade_-_01[H264][35C12DFB].mkv':
    Duration: 00:23:39.8, bitrate: N/A
    Stream #0.0, 0.58 fps(r): Video: h264, yuv420p, 640x480
    Stream #0.1: Audio: vorbis, 48000 Hz, stereo]


    and the FFMPEGX [0.0.9w_r2] app suggests conversion to

    VIDEO: mencoder mpeg4, 640x480, 940 kbps, 0.58 fps, no crop

    Which I didn't pay attention to as I have a=had pretty good success in using the default suggested settings in the past versions of FFMPEGX.

    ----

    So is this a badly encoded file, an anomaly I should look out for and not require any futher research?

    I got a Matroska file here, which at first gets a 0.08 fps framerate. So, for a conversion I set the VLC value in the Video tab. And while encoding, mencoder handles it fine, detecting the real source framerate, according to the log line VIDEO: [XVID] 688x560 12bpp 25.000 fps.

  16. I get this when trying to encode a VOB file to mp4 using the .MP4 mprg-4 preset:

    any insight?

    Oh yeah i sent you the DV QT file to convert to FLV again... did it work for you this time?

  17. Apparently the "4 motion vectors" option has been disabled in ffmpeg core. I'll remove it, in the meantime just disable it.

    Machine: Intel Core Duo Mini 1.66GHz/1GB RAM
    Source file: Xvid AVI/MP3 Audio
    Target: XviD .MP4/AC3 Audio
    ffmpegX version: 0.0.9w_r3

    Noticed that the video was encoding rather slowly (about the speed of my 1.67GHz G4 PowerBook). A process called 'ffmpeg2' was doing the encoding. Checking the package contents of ffmpegX.app showed that 'ffmpeg2' is a PowerPC only binary.

    This is amazing software! Thanks for the hard work and effort producing it. I've never once regretted the (obscenely small) shareware fee.

  20. I had to keep, in addition to the Universal build of ffmpeg, an older ppc only build which is used in a couple cases, as the newer one was less QT-compliant in those cases.

    I'm still having trouble with passthrough AC3. The ffmpeg/XviD preset is producing files that have no audio when played back through VLC despite VLC claiming it has 6 ch AC3 audio. My KiSS DP-600 also will not play the audio track. [EDIT : the .avi created, when loaded back into ffmpegX, reports audio correctly, and the .avi plays with lots of audio lag in mplayer]

    Source is a single VOB (a single DVD chapter) using the plain straightforward "XviD ffmpeg" preset with the "Audio" modified to be "Passthrough" (encode audio is ticked). No other changes were made to the preset.

    This is happening on every VOB I throw at ffmpegX (0.0.9.w_r3). At the moment, ffmpegX as far as I can see can't preserve passthrough 5.1 AC-3 audio as mencoder downmixes and ffmpegX doesn't seem to quite work when passing through the AC-3.

    Does anyone have any handy hints or tips so I can ditch HandBrake for a one-step conversion to Xvid/5ch AC3 ?

  22. I saw that there was a new FLV feature and I got super excited, as I was just in the process of trying to encode a movie for my blog.

    I have an obnoxiously big mpeg4 mov that imovie produced for me, and I was hoping to convert that to FLV, but I got the following error:

    I've tried enabling the "decode with quicktime" but that didn't help anything out.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try ticking "Invert mapping" on the "Audio" tab before you press "Encode".

    Nope I get the exact same behaviour - no sound in VLC. ffmpegX detailed output here for selecting AC3 rather than passthrough below :-

  27. Indeed, there is no sound in VLC, but there is in Mplayer and it sounds correctly. Probably there's some issue hidden when encoding ac3. I'll check it in more detail but it will probably take some time to clear.

    There's no sound on my KiSS DP-600 either, which means I can't use ffmpegX at all to preserve the surround sound on my DVD rips (which then get pushed to my DP-600 with dp500serv). Back to HandBrake again then, even if the image quality is markedly better under ffmpegX than HandBrake.

    Good luck finding the problem - I'll keep my eyes peeled for updates to ffmpegX.

  29. Hi everyone. I'm getting a weird problem here :
    - Machine : iMac G4 800 Mhz
    - OS version : Mac OS X.3.5
    - ffmpegX version : 0.0.9w_r3 located in my Applications folder
    - mpeg2enc version : http://mjpeg.sourceforge.net/MacOS/mpeg2enc.intel
    - mencoder & mplayer versions : http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/mplayerosx/ffmpegXbinaries20060307.zip

    Everything seems to install correctly, and ffmpegX starts every time like everything is going on well. But encoding just won't work, no matter wich video I choose. The encoding process just starts and finishes immediately ! I've tried with different videos, but the result is always the same.

    The last version I had before was ffmpegX 0.0.9t_r4. It had two major advantages IMHO :
    - It just worked without hassle :P :P,
    - I could put it anywhere in my hard disk, not just in the Applications folder !!!

    Now I can't run the t_r4 version anymore, because it doesn't work with the new binaries. And I can't make the w version work, because it doesn't encode anything. I think I'm going crazy with all this.

    Could someone please tell me what's wrong ? Is it my processor ? My OS ? Something else ? What can I do to make ffmpegX work again ?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Best regards,

    Jose
